The meaning of the term "deflector" is familiar not to all though this rather useful invention in many respects facilitating life to motorists. Some machines staff with them at the plant, it is necessary to bring "air assistants" to others independently.

Vetrovika, established on car windows, serve not only to comfort of the people who have settled down in it, but also considerably ensure safety. At the expense of deflectors of windows the continuous dosed inflow of fresh wind to salon is carried out that interferes with emergence of the drowsiness caused by closeness. Also air circulation interferes with fogging of glasses from within.
Except ventilation, during the movement the deflectors protect the car from hit in salon of dust, the drops of rain which are flying by objects (for example, stubs from the machines going ahead) and insects. Optimizing and redistributing air streams, "vetrovik" allow to move comfortably at great speed even with completely open windows and to minimize drafts.
Other types of deflectors
