Cracked Windshield Safety

November 24, 2014 3:00 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

A cracked windshield is a pain for all drivers. You’re driving down the road, everything is fine, and then wham! A piece of gravel from the truck in front of you flies out and cracks your otherwise pristine windshield. Now you have to either spend time and money getting it fixed, or you have to drive around with what is a potential safety hazard.

Many drivers put off getting a crack fixed for as long as possible. This can be a dangerous gamble. A crack, even a small one, compromises the structural integrity of your windshield. If another piece of debris hits the crack, the windshield is likely to shatter. Some people have even reported that a cracked windshield shattered after driving over a bump too quickly. This is a very scary and dangerous situation. This type of sudden distraction can cause you to overreact and have an accident. In addition, debris from your windshield can scratch your arms, face, hands, and even your eyes. This is a completely preventable situation.

To avoid a shattered windshield, it is important to have cracks fixed as soon as possible. If the crack or chip is small (generally smaller than a quarter), it can be repaired. As it grows larger, it becomes necessary to replace the entire windshield.
