Dangerous Eye Sores
Cracks in the windshield can be more than just a sight for sore eyes. They propose a safety issue to yourself and your precious cargo, your kids. You never would strap your kids into their seats with a ripped seat belt, why is a cracked windshield any different?
A small chip in your windshield is just the beginning of a snowball effect. This is especially true when you live in areas that receive a large amount of moisture. This also hold true when the area that you live in has the tendency to see freezing temperatures. Overtime, the chip will become a crack as weather and moisture make their way into the opening. As the crack spreads, your windshield begins to weaken. This creates an unsafe environment for you and your children when riding in the car. Cracks in your windshield allow you to become a potential victim of your windshield shattering at any time. When you repair a chip of crack right away, you will pay far less than you will have to pay for a windshield replacement.
Your Car Roof
Surprisingly enough, the windshield of your car is also a contributing safety factor to supporting the roof of your car. If you happen to have a severely cracked windshield, you run the risk of a the windshield shattering while the car is in motion or in an accident. Also you could experience the roof collapsing in as well. In the event that the roof collapses, it would make the car inoperable. Such an event would make it nearly impossible to control the vehicle and would, more than likely, result in a collision with another vehicle or standing object. That is a risk that you shouldn’t take whether you are driving alone or if you have your children in the car.
Recruit The Kids To Help
You can encourage your children to help you with protecting your windshield to keep you and your family safe on the road. Tell your children how important it is that they do not slam their doors. The impact and vibrations of the repeated door slamming will cause the minor cracks in the windshield to spread bit by bit over time.
You can also have your kids help to remind you to park in areas that are not in direct sunlight or directly under trees in bad weather. The over exposure to direct sunlight causes huge sways in temperature change that will expand and contract the glass in your windshield and can also lead to expand the already existent cracks. Parking under a large tree before a storm sets you up to be a victim of a broken tree limb that will damage your windshield. By making the kids part of your driving experience, it helps to keep everyone in the car safe!
