Driving With a Cracked Windshield | Steve Landers Collision Center

When driving down the road, it’s not uncommon to see a cracked windshield. While a broken windshield is an everyday annoyance for most people, it can become a much larger problem very quickly. At Steve Landers Collision Center, we want your time on the road to be as safe as possible. Keep reading to learn why a cracked windshield is more dangerous than you think.

Airbag Support: While a cracked windshield doesn’t mean a wreck is imminent, you airbag may not work as well when it happens. Designed to act as a backstop for a deployed airbag, the windshield helps keep the airbag’s pressure as you hit it. When the windshield is compromised, the airbag may not work as planned, potentially making your day even worse.

Loss of Structural Integrity: Windshields play an important role in the structural integrity of your vehicle. When the windshield is cracked, the frame of the vehicle loses some of its strength. Make sure your vehicle can function the way it was designed by keeping your glass free of cracks.

A Growing Problem: While a little crack may seem like no big deal, they can quickly grow. Temperature fluctuations can expand cracks, causing problems like the ones listed above. Keep your car in tip-top shape and get your windshield fixed as quick as you can.
