Dangers of windscreen damage
Many people see a chip or slight crack on a windscreen and think nothing of it, there is a definite increased chance though that window will shatter. With a chip chances are that it will first begin to crack more, meaning you have to then get a new windscreen instead of a repair. A crack though and sometimes a chip can be enough to make a windscreen shatter. This shattering can sometimes be quite suddenly, a large bump can do it or another stone or debris hitting your windscreen. It can even in fact be just going fast that splits and shatters a windscreen: the pressure of air on a windscreen that is damaged may be to much for it to withstand. When a windscreen shatters you will be covered in glass, for a few seconds you will be unable to see and the shock will often send you into an accident. If you survive the initial damage there is a good chance that you will not be unable to see as you will have the wind blowing into your eyes, but hopefully no glass actually in your eyes. Being small shards shattered glass is unlikely to do too much damage other than a few lacerations but of course if it does shatter into your eyes this is serious. If you’re lucky you can avoid an accident and get your car safely to the side of the road but sadly many people aren’t as lucky.
