Windshield Wiper

      Windshield wiper is a device connected to a mechanical arm for the purpose of wiping off rain from windshield or rear window.During rainy season, windshield wiper is very vital in any vehicle. Rains blur the view of a driver that it is only necessary for the windshield wiper to be functioning well.
     In today’s jeepney ride, it rained heavily and the road is not so visible because of rain. The jeepney where I rode has a small windshield wiper and the driver keeps on turning it off and on. I pitied the jeepney driver because either he doesn’t have the time to change his wiper or he cannot afford it. Despite the blurry view of the driver, we still manage to arrive safely in our destinations.

Jeepney Ride Accessories

          Jeepney is an open-window vehicle. Since it is open, the wind goes in and out inside the jeepney. To be able to enjoy your jeepney ride you must bring along with you your jeepney ride accessories. First thing is the sunglasses. Aside from protecting your eyes from sun’s rays, sunglasses would also protect your eyes from the small particles blown away by the wind. Second is the big handkerchief or the “bandana”. It is used to cover your hair so that it won’t be stiff with dust. Of course you should also not forget your handkerchief. Since the wind blown away by vehicles is not only full of dust but also mixed with pollution, you should cover your nose and mouth with handkerchief. For long distance travel with rough roads, jeepney passengers bring coats or jacket because aside from protecting themselves from cold wind it would also cover up their clothing from dust. These are only some of the things you must bring along with you for a comfortable and enjoyable jeepney ride. Have a safe ride.
