    While it's common to leave tires, fluids, wiper-blades and brake pad changes to the last minute, it isn't best practice when things stop working properly or fall off. While various new wiper blades coming to market are getting more technically intelligent I still have a problem paying quite so much for them at all because to this day suppliers still expect we should simply replace our blades just because they might show signs of smearing or juddering. Wiper blade suppliers don’t provide instructions to make them last longer or show how to prevent adhesion to frosty windscreens. How to soften them if they get brittle? Are there any parts that can be recycled or traded in on a new set? Of course it's in their best interest if the blades are discarded often as this makes profit. They aren't here to help you or the ecology. I found a great must-have Blade Restoring tool on www.wiper-wizard.com which works wet or dry, doesn’t rust, has no moving parts to mess with and sure fixed my wiper blades in less than 60 seconds. I should get at least 6 times more wiper-blade life now, which means a set of wiper blades cost and pollute 6 times less too. Now THIS looks after our environment and helps our planet. By all means buy and fit the new silicon wipers…BUT make sure you can get 5 or 6 uses from them before dumping the remnants into the environment. This will do some REAL good to our world, your wallet and your vision.

    I don't want someone else to buy a car with lousy brakes and then slam into anyone. This law fit's my view that the primary role of government is to protect the people and their family from other people.

    I especially approve of the braking requirement. I don't want someone else to buy a car with lousy brakes and then slam into me. This law fit's my view that the primary role of government is to protect me and my family from other people.

    As long as it makes vehicles safer I'm all for it.

    So exactly how long is it before ads in the backs of car magazines offer black-box trackers hooked up to cellphones so you can see just exactly how your teen is driving? This smells of the insurance industry raising my rates based on how THEY evaluate I drive based on blackbox data. How long til they raise your rates unless you let them have access to it, HUH?
