Road debris or harsh weather conditions can often leave damages on the front windshield. The windshield is the immediate protective barrier from the road and wind, and it is also the lens to the driver’s wide field of vision. Therefore, any windshield damage, no matter how minor, should always be taken seriously. Here are some steps you can take to assess your windshield damage, but if that’s too overwhelming, feel free to give our expert technicians a call to help your car receive the immediate attention it needs.
When do I need to get my windshield repaired?
If your windshield has a minor scratch or major crack, this should be addressed as soon as possible as it can lead to further damage that may require a full windshield replacement. Call our expert technicians today to schedule an on-site or mobile repair service as soon as possible, as driving with a damaged windshield is considered unlawful in the state of California. For more minor surface blemishes, plausibly caused by smaller road debris or unknown causes, you may get away with just a Window Chip Repair, a simpler and more straight forward fix. The key however, is that no matter the damage, to get it examined and fixed by an expert technician as soon as possible

- Your safety should be your #1 concern; it is to us! At Good Auto Glass our number one concern is that your glass be repaired to ensure your safety back on the roads. Sometimes people dismiss windshield damage for just a cosmetic issue, but the serious truth is, windshield damage can be life-threatening. Car accidents and further window impairment can be avoided with windshield repair, as cracked windshields are more vulnerable to increasing weakness and can also reduce proper vision when driving.

Good Auto Glass, unlike many other auto glass companies, will never attempt to sell you low grade glass to cut costs. As an auto glass service in the U.S. we have been required to pass the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration baseline standards. We not only want to meet the baseline requirements, but provide you with excellent quality affordable glass that can ensure your safety on the road.
- Avoid getting a ticket! Did you know that it’s against the law to drive with a vision impairing damaged windshield? According to California law, Vehicle Code 26710, it is against the law to operate any car on highway when the vehicle’s windshield or rear window is defective and causes impairments to the driver’s vision. If your front or rear windshield fails to comply with this code, the vehicle will be required to meet the code within a 48 hour period. However, unlawful operation of a damaged vehicle that breaks this code, can also lead to arrest of the driver, and require the driver or owner of the vehicle to provide evidence that window repairments have been made to meet the requirements of the code in court. In the end, it isn’t really about just avoiding a ticket though, Good Auto Glass and law enforcements know how life-threatening the dangers of driving a vehicle with windshield damage can really be!
