It is illegal to drive your vehicle with a broken windshield, it can cause glass debris to fly off and become an obstruction to other drivers, creating accidents on the road. Aside from that, if your windshield shatters, it will affect the airbags and be deployed outside the vehicle. If an accident occurs, you will have no protection. Not getting your windshield replaced will put you in danger of serious harm, if not death.
You can’t simply replace your windshield by yourself. You’ll be risking the price you paid for the materials and your safety if it’s not put on correctly. Incorrect installation of windshields will cause them to crack and break again. You’ll need a professional to look over the damage and give you a proper estimate of the cost and make sure that they use only high-quality materials.
