Chicago auto glass repair is very important. It can be very tempting to drive around with a small chip or crack but you should know that you are really taking a safety risk. Once the integrity or your windshield is compromised you are literally taking a risk that your windshield will fail. There are a few things that can affect whether your windshield is going to crack or shatter after it has been chipped. A couple of those things are way out of your control and you just never know when the windshield is going to completely give in.
Frosty, icy mornings can be a huge factor in that windshield finally giving out on you. The cold can cause the windshield to crack if it has already been compromised. All it takes is one very cold morning and you start up the car and the windshield that is already compromised heats up and it will crack all the way across, in some cases it can actually shatter.
Driving is full of hazards that can easily take a chipped windshield to a dangerously cracked windshield. Every time you drive and go over a bump you are risking your windshield. There are so many road hazards but it is not just the hazards that pose a danger. Just the movement of the vehicle and the force of the wind can result in very serious damage to your windshield.
What Can Happen?
A lot of people feel that nothing will happen if they let that little chip go but the reality is there is plenty that can happen and it happens more times than most people realize:
* Windshield cracks and distorts view
* Windshield shatters and causes injuries
* Windshield fails and causes an accident
In most cases you will get up in the morning and realize that the chip has turned into a full blown crack. In other cases it is far worse. You can be driving on a highway and the windshield gives out from the pressure of the wind and you could wind up in an accident because your vision is impaired. In other cases the windshield can shatter after a minor accident causing very serious injury where an injury should not have occurred. You could be the cause of an accident because the windshield is impairing your vision and you wind up being liable. Get it fixed!
