Your windshield helps keep you safe in the event of accidents. Be sure your auto glass dealer has experience and know-how.
It’s a bad morning when you go to leave for work or for the weekly Sunshine Strummers get-together and you see a tree limb has fallen on your car. The windshield is cracked but not broken, so you think that maybe, just maybe, you can put off repairs or replacement for awhile.
That’s a bad idea, says the Auto Glass Safety Council. Not only should you get it fixed, they say, but you should also make sure it’s done right because an improperly installed or weak windshield could cost you your life in an accident.
“The windshield provides a significant amount of strength to the structural support in the cabin of the vehicle,” the AGSC says. “For instance, in a front end collision the windshield provides up to 45% of the structural integrity of the cabin of the vehicle and in a rollover, up to 60%.
"Think about that for just a moment. How would you like for over half of the force of a collision to be absorbed by YOU because your windshield flew out in an accident? It happens more times than most of us are aware.”
The AGSC adds, “The windshield is an integral part of the safety restraint system in your car. It keeps the roof from crushing in on you in a rollover, it allows the airbags to deploy in the correct position to cushion passengers, and prevents you and your family from being ejected in a serious collision. It’s important to your family’s safety that the automotive glass in your vehicle be installed properly.”
