SAFETY FACTS

Your Windshield and Your Safety

The primary function of a vehicle's windshield is to help protect the driver and passengers from wind, weather, insects and road debris, but did you know that your car's windshield is also a key piece of equipment when it comes to keeping you safe during a collision?

  • Your windshield along with your seatbelt and airbag make up your vehicle's safety restraint system, or SRS. Your SRS is designed to protect and keep you safe especially during collisions. The safest place to be in the event of a crash is inside the vehicle.
  • In the event of a rollover, your windshield provides over 70% of your vehicle's structural integrity.
  • Unlike normal glass, windshield glass is a form of safety glass known as laminated glass. Windshields are actually made from 2 panes of glass with a thin layer of vinyl in between. This prevents the glass from shattering and helps keep the windshield in one piece during collisions.
  • Damage to your windshield can greatly affect its structural integrity. Even seemingly minor damage such as small cracks and chips can potentially spread and create a larger area of damage. Because of this, it is very important to get rock chips repaired as soon as possible.
