A windshield chip can be caused by airborne rocks or debris and can develop into an intimidating, long scratch over time. Repairing a windshield is about more than aesthetics; while you may not know it, driving with a chipped or scratched windshield can put you in harm’s way and is actually illegal in some jurisdictions.
Why is Driving with a Cracked Windshield Dangerous?
Your windshield is one of the most important parts of your car; if it is not intact, you may face many dangers, including:
- Driver Blind Spot: Your windshield provides you with a vantage point from which to view the road; if your view of the road is compromised, you may not be able to drive as safely as if you had full visibility.
- Driving Distraction: Large scratches and chips in a windshield can distract you from focusing your attention on the road—where it belongs.
- Weakened Glass: Chips and scratches can weaken the integrity of the glass, making it more susceptible to shattering.
In addition, continuing to let a chip or crack mar the surface of your windshield increases the likelihood that you will later need to replace the windshield—rather than simply getting auto glass chip break repair. (It is far less costly to repair your windshield than replace it.)
