- Even the smallest chip or crack in your windshield can weaken your windshield and increase your chances of serious injuries in a collision.
- In a collision your windshield is there to keep you safe.
- When your windshield is in good condition it will transfer the impact of the front-end collision to the chassis. This means it will lessen the feel of impact in the car and on the passengers.
- If your windshield is cracked and shatters during a collision, passengers are at a far greater risk to injury.
- Windshields add structural support that can help prevent a roof from caving in when a car is flipping.
- If there's a crack or chip, the windshield has a lot less strength which can break and the roof can crushed.
- You may also have far greater chance of being ejected from a vehicle.
- With a weakened windshield, you will no longer have any protection if you didn’t buckle up. If your windshield is intact it can keep you from being forcefully thrown from the vehicle.
- Your passenger side airbags will also lose a lot of their purpose. Your windshield helps direct the airbags towards the passengers but if you have a weakened windshield and it breaks during the collision. The airbags will direct out the windshield and will lose their purpose.
