Driving around with a cracked windshield is VERY dangerous.
Driving around with a cracked windshield is not only annoying and unappealing, but very dangerous. Windshields are one of the most important structural support features of your vehicle. This specialized glass depends on complete surface integrity of all layers to remain strong. It is essential to maintain auto glass components and have them professionally replaced or repaired at first sign of fatigue or damage. The windshield, windows and other auto glass components of your vehicle help protect and shield you against injuries. A crack compromises this carefully engineered structure inside the glass. Additionally, proper air bag deployment requires that the windshield and side windows be installed correctly. People fail to realize the amount of force that is applied to a windshield even at moderate speeds can cause the windshield to shatter if struck by a small pebble on the highway. This is the reason why we do not recommend driving your vehicle until your windshield has been successfully replaced by a professional. Your safety depends on it.
