1. A vehicle comprising:
a window opening and a secondary window opening formed in a vehicle body so as to be adjacent to each other;
a window panel for covering the window opening;
a secondary window panel for covering the secondary window opening; and
a wiper device for wiping both the window panel and the secondary window panel,
the wiper device having a wiper blade capable of crossing a boundary between the window panel and the secondary window panel and continuously wiping from the window panel to the secondary window panel,
wherein the wiper blade reverses direction at two reversing positions, including a first reversing position and a second reversing position, and reciprocates between these two reversing positions,
a gap between the window panel and the secondary window panel is larger than a leading end of a blade rubber provided with the wiper blade so that the leading end of the blade rubber does not contact with each surface of the window panel and the secondary window panel in the first reversing position, and
in the first reversing position, a part of the blade rubber overlaps the boundary.
