Anywhere road work is taking place or near construction, you need to be aware that large vehicles can send rocks and debris flying back toward you, resulting in damage to your windshield.

How to avoid needing windshield replacement because of road debris in Atlanta:

Stay 500ft back from commercial vehicles – particularly dump trucks. And pay attention to any vehicles that are transporting items, whether it’s a commercial vehicle or a pickup truck. Keeping a safe distance will help prevent or reduce the damage caused by items falling onto the road.

If your windshield is chipped or cracked, get it repaired or replaced AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. A little crack in your windshield could result in a much bigger issue if more road debris impacts your windshield or if you get into an accident.
