It is quite likely that one day or another every car owner does experience a cracked, chipped, or smashed windshield. No matter how careful a driver you might be, it is not possible for you to control other drivers on the road, and nor is it possible for you to always know what lies on the road ahead of you. Even if you do not get involved in any accident or crash, even a tiny rock, which is flicked up off the road by a car in front of you, can easily chip your car’s windshield. If your windshield is chipped, it is important that you get it repaired or consider a windshield replacement, whatever is better in your case. That is where Southwind Auto Glass Memphis comes in.
If there is a chip in your windshield, you can get it repaired since smaller chips can be repaired with ease. However, if you let this go unattended, the problem can get worse. Since the glass keeps on getting weaker, the small chip can turn into a crack, and the crack can eventually spread across the entire windshield. This can easily happen if while driving you go over a bump.
Though a tiny chip in your windshield might not seem much of a concern to you, it can be illegal to drive your car in certain cases, depending on where the chip is, and how large it is. The rules differ from state to state. So, if you plan to travel a long distance in your car, it will be best to first get your windshield replaced, else you might be inviting serious legal trouble. Trying to save some money by delaying a windshield replacement can actually end up costing you more.
Some chips can affect the driver’s road view badly, by either being right in the line of their sight, or by affecting the way light moves in through the windshield. Light that comes in through a proper windshield can be reflected and refracted differently from the light that comes in through the chip in the windshield glass. So, the objects that the driver gets to see through the chip might be nearer or farther away than it seems to be. This is quite like when you see an object in a water tank, and when you try to touch it, its position seems to be slightly different from where you thought it to be. It is very important that you get to see things accurately while driving, and you need to get the correct position of all hazards, pedestrians, and other drivers. But a chipped windshield will not allow you the proper vision, and thus it is essential you get it replaced at the earliest convenience, to keep yourself and those on the road safe.
