Broken windshields are common in any State in America. The sand spread on roads for traction during winter months may have fine gravel that gets thrown by a tire into a windshield. You hear a sharp sound, then spot a crack or a star-shaped chip in your windshield. The damage also might happen in a hail storm.
Many people with broken windshields delay replacing the windshield. But this isn’t safe, and it could get you a traffic ticket if it obstructs your view. A small chip or crack in windshield glass could suddenly expand to obscure your view. Neglecting a damaged windshield could lead to a car accident and injuries.
