Driving around with a damaged windshield can be very dangerous
Redwood City, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) May 17, 2011
Many people agree unaware that a crack or other damage to a windshield can cause a car to be unsafe to drive because it not only obstruct a driver’s vision, it can also leave the car more vulnerable to structural damage in the event of an accident.
“Driving around with a damaged windshield can be very dangerous,” says Ryan Samford, owner of Peninsula Auto Glass, a full-service mobile San Mateo windshield repair and replacement service. “The windshield protects you from the outside, so you want it to be as strong as it can be.”
The windshield of a vehicle is a reinforced support structure. If it has a large crack and the car gets into an accident, the roof loses a substantial amount of support. And when an airbag deploys, it usually expands toward the windshield first. A compromised windshield might affect the airbag’s effectiveness.
Samford urges all drivers with cracked windshields to replace them immediately for their own safety.
