When is a Windshield Crack Dangerous?
17 Mar 2016 admin 0
A crack in your cars windshield is a fairly common and frequent occurrence. Rocks getting kicked up by tires can end up hitting your windsheild with so much impact that a small crack can occur. Although when there is a small crack in the windshield, some car owners go long periods of time without doing anything. What is the risk of this? Do cracks pose any threat to the drivers safety?
If not repaired or replaced, small cracks can spread and grow. Larger cracks can affect the drivers visibility and could result in a traffic violation.
In the event of a front-end collision, cracked windows reduce the structural integrity of the windshield. A fully intact window, transfers the force of an impact down toward the chassis. You have greater chances of injury if the window is cracked.
Your windshield provides as a secondary function for keeping your air bag system in place. If a windshield is cracked, an air bag wont deploy correctly and can then cause injury.
A new replacement car windshield will keep you safe and will get you back on track. For more information about Fields Corner Glass and how we can help, please feel free to give us a call at 617-265-8886 or fill out our online contact form.
