Have you ever been driving down the road and piece of gravel comes up and puts a chip in your windshield? If so, you know how frustrating it can be! It never fails that the chip in the glass is in a bad spot for your vision, and sometimes it’s bad enough that it continues to fracture after the initial impact.
While it may not seem like a big deal to have a small chip in the windshield or windows of your vehicle, in truth this could be a dangerous situation if left unattended. What starts out as something small can eventually crack like a spider web, leaving you with a car that’s not safe for driving.
So, when exactly should you schedule glass replacement for your vehicle? The truth is that scheduling glass replacement sooner rather than later can be beneficial for a variety of reasons. To start, if the chip in the glass is in your line of sight, it could result in your being unable to drive safely. This could be especially true if the sun or bright lights reflect off the chipped glass, creating a blind spot while you are driving.
Additionally, glass replacement becomes critical when the small chip starts to spread. That means you’ll want to take immediate action when your car has broken glass. Not only will you be safer, but you’ll also be less likely to receive a citation from the highway patrol.
