Looking out for windscreen damage
Spotting damage to a windscreen before it gets worse or shatters can save you a lot of time and money, it can also potentially saved lives. A windscreen that suddenly shattered will very often cause an accident and shattering often happens at high speeds to make it all the more dangerous.
Look out for chips as well as cracks, chips can usually be repaired and a resin used to make sure the windscreen stays tough. Look for chips and get them fixed before they get worse: make sure you look at all areas of the windscreen including on the passengers side. As for cracks these can be tougher to sport but can easily get worse and lead to a screen shattering. Cracks often start from the edges of the glass so look carefully around the sides for a crack emerging from the rubber keeping the screen in place. Cracks are also difficult to see from certain angles and so you may need to look at your screen from an acute angle to see cracks that may be right in front of your driving position but impossible to see. Once you find damage don’t wait around, get it fixed as soon as possible, don’t go on fast roads beforehand and get a screen specialist to come to you with a new screen if needed.
