Many of today’s car, truck, van, and SUV owners do not realize how much of a critical safety role the vehicle’s windshield plays when engineers are designing the auto. Unlike classic automobiles that did not have airbags nor a lot of safety engineering invested into protecting vehicle occupants in the event of a rollover accident, today’s autos do. Many car owners are surprised to find out that if their auto requires a full windshield replacement that they actually run the risk of the front airbags failing to work properly if the glass is not intact. In some cases, it has been documented that airbags can even generate enough force to push a damaged windshield out of the vehicle frame. If you find yourself in this position, you should not let a perception of a high windshield replacement cost keep you from pursuing repairs to your automobile. This will only extend the total amount of time that both yourself and your auto passengers are exposed to a greater amount of danger and risk in the event of a vehicle accident.
