Spotting cracks before they grow
Windscreens can easily get small chips and cracks on them, this is the time to catch them though before they grow meaning that you need a new windscreen or even lead to you windscreen shattering which can be dangerous and easily cause an accident.
If a chip occurs while you are driving where a stone is thrown up and hits the screen right in front of you you are likely to know that the chip is there. If however it hits elsewhere on the windscreen or a crack forms for some other reason it can be more difficult to notice and especially so on other windows which can get cracks too, the rear windscreen in particular you probably rarely look at close up at all.
Make an effort every now and again to check for chips and cracks especially when there is a lot of grit on the road in icy weather.
You may need to look at your windscreen at an angle to see some cracks, also try using a torch at night which may catch the crack and make it more visible. While at this check for cracks forming near the edges of your windows especially in corners that may just be appearing above the rubber around windows.
