Auto Glass Safety
Consumer education about the facts of auto glass safety is more important than you may realize. A simple crack or chip in your windshield can seriously increase your chances of injury during a car accident. Structurally, the windshield gives support to the vehicle’s roof and if it has a crack or chip, the windshield may not fully prevent the roof from caving in during an accident.
