Did you know that in a forward collision, your windshield provides up to 45% of the structural integrity of your vehicle? You would probably guess that seat belts, brakes, and airbags are the most important vehicle components to your safety, and you wouldn’t be wrong. But believe it or not, your windshield is also one of the most important safety features on your vehicle. For another example, if you’re in a rollover accident, your windshield prevents your vehicle’s roof from caving in. Due to factors such as this, keeping your windshield in good condition is an important part of regular vehicle maintenance and Fall Car Care.
