Chips and cracks to your windshield tend to happen fairly regularly during daily driving especially when travelling at higher speeds on the highway. We see this all the time in Alberta and British Columbia on highways such as Alberta Highway 2 that has large amounts of traffic moving at high speeds between Edmonton and Calgary.
Chips and cracks in your window may not seem like a big deal, but they impact your visibility and are a safety hazard.
If your windshield has a serious imperfection, it may be tempting to just ignore it or look around it to save time and money, but leaving the crack or chip and driving around with it is not an option.
The cracked glass may be compromised and the windshield is part of the safety system of the vehicle.
