The windshield has come a long way. As part of your vehicle’s safety restraint system (SRS), it protects you from roadway debris, weather, vehicle emissions, and provides structural integrity to your vehicle in the event of an accident.
Protection in the Event of an Accident
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 40,000 Americans are killed and more than 5 million are injured in highway motor vehicle crashes each year. Of the motor vehicle fatalities that occur, more than 30% are due to people who are ejected from the vehicle or injured during vehicle rollovers.
Your windshield supports the overall structure of your vehicle’s main cabin, and it can protect passengers from being crushed during accidents and/or ejected.
If you’ve experienced any damage to your windshield, or if you suspect other issues related to your vehicle’s windshield, contact us today to find out whether you should have your windshield replaced or repaired.
4 Important Functions of Your Windshield
#1 – Visibility
In the old days, people used to wear goggles to keep bugs and highway debris out of their eyes. Today, the windshield offers both protection and better visibility. It is important to keep your windshield clear.
#2 – Airbag Support
Though not as obvious, your vehicle’s windshield supports the passenger side airbag during deployment in the event of an accident. If your windshield is installed properly, your airbags may not deploy properly.
#3 – Cushion During Impact
Believe it or not, the windshield is made of a flexible polyvinyl layer that is sandwiched between two layers of glass. While the glass may break upon impact, the polyvinyl layer offers some cushioning.
#4 – Structural Support
Today’s windshields provide structural support to the rest of the main part of the car. If your windshield is not installed properly, it can actually cause other problems to the overall functionality of your vehicle!
