Dangers Of Not Fixing Broken Windshield
9 Nov 2016 admin 0
With winter fairly close, this is the time of the year that many people get cracks in their windshield from rocks and debris. But, after someone gets a crack in their windshield they often delay replacing it because they don’t see any risk. Unfortunately, a chip or a crack in your windshield can result in direct safety concerns:
Structure Loss In Front-End Collision: When a windshield is completely intact it helps take some of the force from a front-end collision. This helps lessen the effect and force felt inside of the car which protects the passengers.
Greater Risk Of Getting Thrown From Car: If a driver gets tossed out of their seat during a collision, then having an intact windshield can make a big different. Any structural downgrade from the windshield itself can result in someone getting thrown out of the car.
Greater Chance Of Injury In Roll-Over Accident: If your car happens to flip-over then having an intact windshield is crucial for safety.
Ineffective Airbag Deployment: In many cars airbag deployment, the windshield is crucial in the process. When a collision occurs, the windshield is the backstop which makes the airbag inflate towards the passenger. The impact of a crash could shatter a chipped windshield which may make the airbag ineffectively deploy.
