Absolutely not – regardless of the size, nature, or severity, windshield damage should be taken seriously and addressed as soon as possible. Windshields are often overlooked, but they form a necessary safety barrier between you and the outside of your car.
A damaged windshield compromises the structural integrity of your car. First and foremost, a cracked or chipped windshield is a major visual obstruction. Besides not being able to see through the damaged glass, a windshield is supposed to protect you from flying objects. In fact, you will probably fail your next vehicle inspection if your crack is worse enough.
While a small chip may not seem like the end of the world, it doesn’t mean you should ignore them altogether. Cracks can deepen and spread, making your windshield a safety hazard.
Not only do the cracks and chips on the driver’s side make it more difficult for the driver to see, but the cracks can also cause the sunlight and other vehicle lights to reflect in concerning ways.
For all of these reasons mentioned above, you should repair your chipped or cracked windshield as soon as possible. At BumperDoc Express, we make windshield repair easy, affordable, and convenient.
