A cracked or improperly installed windshield can be catastrophic and even deadly in the event of an accident. The windshield in your vehicle prevents the driver and passengers from being ejected during an accident. It is an important barrier and a cracked or poorly installed windshield can fail during a collision or roll over allowing passengers to be ejected.
Also, your windshield is a “backstop” for the passenger side air bags. A cracked or improperly installed windshield lacks the structural integrity necessary to absorb the force of a deployed airbag. Your windshield also supports the roof.
It is designed to prevent the roof from crushing you in a roll over accident. A cracked or improperly installed windshield may fail to support the roof if the car flips over, causing severe injury or death to the occupants.
