A car with a damaged windscreen is dangerous. Not only does a fractured windshield reduce visibility for the driver, putting him or her and fellow passengers in peril, it also risks injury to other road users.
It’s imperative that forward visibility in a car is as unimpaired as it can possibly be. After all, this is generally the direction that the majority of motorists travel in.
Even relatively small cracks in the glass can impair your view, and have the potential to widen to catastrophic dimensions in an instant – something that it is never worth risking just to try and save a bit of money.
Furthermore, a damaged windscreen is also a security risk, one that is more likely to attract the unwanted attention of thieves.
In most cases, the windscreen will need to be replaced, particularly if the size or location of the chip or fracture is significant.
