Meet Jane Evans

During college, I lived in a small, old house. My roommates and I loved it's cozy charm and, for the most part, didn't have any problems. However, one day, we noticed that the carpet in one of the bedrooms was wet--and it couldn't be dried. When we called our landlady and the repairman, they discovered that the shower not only needed to be re-caulked, but there was mold everywhere under the carpet. We had to move out for two weeks while they fixed the problem. Soon, thanks to the contractor (the likes of whom you can read about), we were back at home.

The Four Dangers Of Not Paying Attention To Your Windshield

You're driving on the road, and you notice a chip in your windshield. Do not ignore it! Too often, people will do this thinking a small chip isn't a big deal, but if you are involved in a car accident, that one little chip could make a huge difference in the amount of danger you are put in upon impact. Here are the four biggest dangers of not paying attention to your windshield:

  1. Ejection: In the event of a car accident, the chances of being ejected from your vehicle is more likely since the windshield is more vulnerable to breaking completely upon impact. Of course, this is easily prevented if you are wearing a seatbelt, but then you still have a windshield that has shattered and can seriously injure you and your passengers. 
  2. Problems With the Airbag: The airbag needs the windshield to work properly. If the windshield is cracked, the airbags won't have something durable to push against. Since the airbags rely on lots of pressure, they will contribute to the shattering of the glass and then inflate outwards from the vehicle thus not providing you with any protection. 
  3. More Severe Rollovers: Should you be involved in a rollover car accident, the windshield provides structural support that you need to stay safe. The windshield will prevent the roof from caving in, which can prevent serious injury to you and your passengers. However, if the windshield is cracked, it will likely shatter and no longer provide this support that you need. 
  4.  Impair Vision: While it seems unlikely that a small crack can make any difference in your ability to see the road in front of you clearly, it will become worse over time, thus impairing your ability to see clearly. To avoid this, you need to have small cracks and chips repaired right away. Otherwise, you risk the crack becoming so bad that you can't even drive the vehicle to a shop to get it fixed. You also risk getting a fix it ticket from an officer if you do decide to drive with a damaged windshield. 

These are just four of the dangers that you can come across if you drive with a damaged windshield. Be sure to repair small cracks and chips right away. Not only can it save you from a life-threatening situation, but it is also going to cost you significantly less in repairs since you won't have to worry about the replacement of the entire windshield.
