so the wipers dont freeze to the windshield ,aparantly they forgot to remove the bag.
Whenever you park your car while it is snowing, raise your wipers off of the windshield of your car. This helps in two ways. First, the wiper blades won't freeze to your windshield. Second, you won't damage your wipers while clearing snow and ice off of your windshield.
Originally posted by bootlen We do the same thing here in SC but for a different reason...to make people say, "what is up with people putting bags over the rear wipers of cars? Did I miss something? Anyone? Bueller?"
Doesn't work too well though. No one here named Bueller.
You usually see it around here when the car is broken down on the side of the road. I think it means something like, I'll be right back please don't tow me. There's usually a little orange sticker on the window too.
