The windshield is likely one of the first things you see when you spot a vehicle. As a very important, key element of the makeup of your car, it needs to be in pristine condition. In fact, a chipped or cracked windshield can be incredibly dangerous for every passenger. A damaged windshield makes a driver more susceptible to causing an accident and hurting other drivers. For one, vision is impaired, which means collisions with other cars become more likely. Lastly, and likely the most catastrophic, is that windshields serve as support for a vehicle's roof. In a rollover accident, a damaged windshield does not offer the same level of structural support for the roof. Windshield Safety Whether you have recently embarked on a long road trip with dirt roads or have experienced some damage from flying debris on the highway, cracks and chips on auto glass are not uncommon. When this occurs, it is important to have your windshield inspected by an expert. Some chips can simply be repaired, while major cracks call for a complete windshield replacement. Therefore, the technician repairing or replacing your windshield should not cut any corners. Although a repair can be quick, it should not be anything short of completely thorough.
