2 Reasons To Replace Your Windshield

by Gaëtan Meunier

Your vehicle's windshield is one of the most important safety features in your car, as long as it is in good condition. Keeping your vision free of any obstructions and helping you to survive an accident are just two of the many reasons to replace your windshield as soon as possible.


One of the most dangerous things that can occur while you are driving your vehicle is that your vision can be obstructed. When driving a car, cracks in your windshield can hide a road hazard until it is far too late for you to avoid it, which can result in you getting into an accident. Cracks in the windshield can also cause you to miss signs that the car in front of you is braking suddenly or prevent you from noticing a pedestrian attempting to cross the street.

Even chips in your windshield can be a danger. Sure, rock chips seem like they would not be a hazard because of their small size, but they can easily and quickly turn into large cracks. For example, driving along a bumpy road, a jarring impact when you drive over a speed bump, or cold weather can cause a rock chip in  your windshield to turn into a crack and begin spreading.


Another reason to replace your windshield is that the windshield is designed to keep you alive in an accident. If you are involved in a head-on collision, the windshield is designed to stay intact. If the windshield is compromised by cracks, it can shatter in that kind of accident and shower the cabin of your car with shards of glass.

In addition, if your seat belts fail, the windshield is meant to stop you from being ejected from the vehicle. If the windshield's strength is compromised, it may not be able to stop you from flying out of the vehicle and into the road.

Finally, a compromised windshield will not be able to protect you if your car rolls over in an accident. This is because the windshield will not be strong enough to prevent the roof of the car from collapsing in on you and your passengers.

Contact a business that does auto glass replacement like Glass Service Center Inc for more information on windshield and auto glass repair. An intact windshield can protect you in the event of a car accident, while also making an accident less likely by keeping your vision free of obstructions.
