Looking through pits and cracks in the windshield or even the side window glass of your vehicle can be frustrating at best. It is not just challenging, it can be risky to not take care of any problems with auto glass as promptly as possible. Cracks reflect sunlight differently, and the resulting glare can reduce your visibility tremendously. They also weaken the auto glass, which could result in a total failure without warning. Loss of security is another risk involved.
Of all the hazards of not getting your auto glass repaired or replaced quickly, the ones that are the most serious are those that could cause you to have a serious accident. It just isn’t worth the risk to you, your passengers, other travelers and even pedestrians. Having reduced visibility because of cracked auto glass means you could rear-end a vehicle, run over someone in a crosswalk, or even go off the road.
Your vehicle’s windshield can handle quite a bit of force and stay intact. However, if it has been weakened already, it may not be able to withstand something as simple as a kicked up stone from a dump truck or even a misguided bird. The result is an entire windshield imploding into the car, which can send you into a serious accident, as well as leave you with cuts and scrapes from the glass. While this is an extremely rare occurrence, it is not worth the risk to neglect a problem with your auto glass.
It isn’t just the windshield you should be concerned with. Having broken side auto glass also carries risk. While a thief is more than willing to break the glass on his own, if it is already broken, it can be a tempting vehicle for even someone who hadn’t planned on doing a smash and grab.
