Windshield Technology Display

The vast majority of industry authorities agree that advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are the way of the future. These systems simply make vehicles safer and more efficient. So until the auto and high-tech industries perfect the driverless car, more and more vehicles are bound to come equipped with ADAS features. And more and more of these features will have both positive and negative impacts on your windshield.

Windshield Pitting: What Causes It and What to Do About It

Windshield Pitting

When your windshield is intact and functional, it’s easy to take it for granted. In fact, on any give day, you simply look right through that finely engineered piece of auto glass, without considering all the important functions that your vehicle’s windshield plays in your driving safety and enjoyment. Over time, windshield pitting can mar the surface of your auto glass, affecting the vehicle’s appearance–and creating hazardous visibility and crash safety problems.

High wind and torrential rain are not the only reason to be concerned during a thunderstorm. When conditions are just right and cold air comes into contact with warm air high above the earth, dangerous hail can result, capable of damaging whatever it strikes as it falls to earth. When parked outside or being driven during the hail storm, vehicles are often the recipient of dents and other damage, including breakage to the windshield and other glass components of the car.

If you’ve been driving for any significant period of time, you’ve been in a situation like this: You’re barreling down the highway to an important professional engagement or an exciting recreational event when you notice a dark and menacing storm cloud looming on the horizon.

Minutes later, you’re in the middle of what seems like Armageddon! Amid thunder crashes and lightening flashes, buckets of rain begin pelting your windshield, reducing your visibility to near zero. To make matters worse, as the streets begin to fill with runoff water, that truck in front of you joins with various passing vehicles to splash and splatter even more water on your already inundated windshield.

The Best Ways to Maintain and Protect Your Windshield

Automotive glass is designed specifically for vehicles. It’s constructed differently so that in the event of an accident, it doesn’t shatter like the glass in your home. Automotive glass is also far more durable than other kinds. That’s why you can hear the nick of a pebble striking your window while driving down the highway and not sustain a chip or crack.

You likely drive the same routes every day; and most days you can count on your travels being relatively uneventful so that you and your vehicle arrive safe and unharmed. But, maybe today wasn’t like every other day. Maybe, today, a tiny piece of gravel hit your windshield, causing a crack. It happens faster than you can blink and just as quickly, the moment is fleeting and you may be asking yourself: could I have done anything to prevent that, or was it just one of those freak accidents?

Stopping a Windshield Crack in its Tracks

A windshield crack can happen anytime, anywhere.

They can cause major visual impairments, and weaken the integrity of the windshield should you be in a more serious accident. Your safety and the safety of other drivers should always be the most important thing on the road, so windshield cracks should not be dismissed as mere cosmetic problems. Read on to find out more about how windshields work, who’s at fault for them, and what to do if you get one.
