The Windshield and Safety
A damaged windshield can, for some reasons, be a severe safety risk while you are out on the road. To begin with, a windshield is a part of an assembly designed to keep a passenger from being thrown out of the vehicle in the event of a collision. A poorly installed and ill-fitted windshield will easily pop out during accidents, and passengers who are not wearing their seatbelts may easily be thrust out of the vehicle. Additionally, the cushioning airbags that deploy on impact use the windshield as a backstop. Where the windshield is compromised, the airbag may not deploy properly, leaving the vehicle's occupants without proper protection.

The glass surfaces on your vehicle are as important (if not more important) than your other vehicle components. If you experience any chips, cracks, or broken glass, auto glass repair should be a top priority. Driving your vehicle with a cracked/broken windshield, power window, or back glass may limit your visibility while on the road. Also, a simple crack can spread on your glass surfaces and result in more extensive damage.
Your auto glass surfaces are vital parts of the vehicle. From your back glass to your doors and windshield, having quality glass surfaces in place is critical while on the road.
If you notice that your auto glass is chipped or cracked, the best course of action may be to replace it. A cracked glass often makes the entire surface less stable, and it can easily shatter under pressure. Also, larger cracks are sometimes impossible to fix through polymer-based techniques. The best repair solution in such cases is to replace the entire glass with a newer, more reliable option.
Window tinting technology has changed over the last decade. Window films could only provide privacy and reduce the amount of light in the vehicle. Nowadays window tinting is part of enhancing the luxury of your car. Window films reject the temperature raising rays keeping your vehicle cool and protecting you from harmful UV rays. The cooling effects of window tinting guarantee that you will not find your car uncomfortably hot after being left in the sun for a long while. Tinting prevents the interior of the form being damaged by the sun.
The windshield is the third most important part of your car after the seat/safety belt and the airbags. It's the front window located at the front of the vehicle. Its safety options range from prevention of wind dust and water from entering your vehicle as the original functions to knowing your surroundings accurately by giving a clear view of traffic and street around you. If an accident must happen, the windshield protects you the driver and any other member in the vehicle from being thrown out of the vehicle mostly in rollover accidents. Although the windshield is designed to take a beating, it sometimes can get penetrated or damaged. Through modern technologies, certain damages to the windshield can be repaired. Like when little chips scratch the surface or cause cracks. This is not only irritating to the driver but is a hazard to his well-being and that of others. A damaged windshield doesn't just affect how the car looks but also the construction rigidity of your vehicle.
