I am wondering how we are not all dropping like the proverbial fly,I would imagine tiny droplets of water are floating all over the place from inconsiderate drivers cleaning their windscreens with Legionnaires disease infested water. Should I be concerned about my hot water tank? Thats it I'm taking to my bed. let me know when it is safe to come out. LOL.
of the vehicles and big milage drivers at that. I would imagine however that if the stagnant water theory is to hold er water then it would apply to all drivers that had the misfortune to drive past or behind a driver applying the screenwasher. more over then, this could also apply aerosol spray of stagnant water driving through puddles or dripping gutters and the like.
Me thinks this is a bit of 'research' put out by makers/distributors of Screenwash.
I have often been sprayed by the vehicle ahead,as I could smell the screenwash additives yet not detect any physical sensation of water spray on my skin.I presume that if I could smell the screenwash,then I could just as easily have been sprayed as often by plain water washers and not known (until I was dead from legionaires disease)
I use a screen wash/de-icer additive in my system all year long, it is adjusted to hit the bottom of the screen. It then spreads up-wards as long as the car is moving at a reasonable speed. None of this spraying the vehicles behind, it's expensive stuff. The smell of it permeates through the car and it is quite a nice smell. But I can't figure out how the smell gets in to the cab of the car from the outside.
