Punta Gorda Windshield Replacement Considerations and Facts
Driving with a broken windshield is never a good idea. First and most importantly, a broken windshield poses a safety risk for you and your passengers. This is because any break in your windshield causes it to have decreased strength and durability. Having a windshield that doesn’t have its complete integrity has the potential to allow for greater injury to the vehicles occupants during an accident. The windshield supports over 40% of the frame of the vehicle during a rollover accident. It also keeps out debris and other projectiles that may become airborne during an accident. With a broken windshield, it becomes exceedingly difficult for your windshield to stop debris and projectiles, as well as keeping your vehicle from becoming crushed.
Next, Depending on where on the windshield the break is, your visibility could be impaired. The break could cause objects to appear differently than normal. It could also reflect light differently into your eyes. Both of these instances have the potential to create small blind spots.
Lastly, it is unlawful to drive within the state of Florida with a broken windshield. The Florida statute 316.610 states that “It is a violation of this chapter for any person to drive or move, or for the owner or his or her duly authorized representative to cause or knowingly permit to be driven or moved, on any highway any vehicle or combination of vehicles which is in such unsafe condition as to endanger any person or property, or which does not contain those parts or is not at all times equipped with such lamps and other equipment in proper condition and adjustment as required in this chapter, or which is equipped in any manner in violation of this chapter, or for any person to do any act forbidden or fail to perform any act required under this chapter.” In short, driving around with a broken windshield could end up costing you a lot of money!
