No one wants to drive around with a cracked windshield. If nothing else, it’s unsightly. Still, a lot of us have a tendency to consider a cracked windshield or window as a “low priority” concern—something to fix when we “have more time.” But, there are four excellent reasons to have your auto glass repaired immediately:
1) It may be the law.
Depending on the state you live in and which part of your auto glass has been damaged, you may be legally obligated to have your windshield or window repaired immediately. If you don’t repair your auto glass, then you could end up paying a fine on top of your repair costs.
2) It will help you see.
It’s possible that the damaged auto glass is part of a car window you never look through, but it’s more likely that the damage is on your windshield or on one of the front side windows. If the crack is obstructing your view, then you need to get it repaired immediately. Of course, even if it’s something you only see out of the corner of your eye, you need to remove the distraction by getting it fixed.
3) It will only get worse.
Due to a variety of factors, including the vibration of your moving car, a crack in your auto glass will get larger and larger the longer it goes unattended. You’ll have a harder time seeing, and a crack that might have been easily repaired will eventually become large enough to require a windshield or window replacement.
4) It will protect you in the event of an accident.
If your damaged auto glass is part of your windshield, then repairing it promptly could help save your life. A damaged windshield is more likely to crack, which can cause serious injury from flying glass. In addition, your windshield is part of your roof’s support system, so if it shatters, then your roof is more likely to cave in.
