Is it Safe to Drive with a Cracked Windshield?

The short answer is that it depends. There is a criterion set by Indiana and federal law that determines when a windshield must be replaced versus repaired. This includes:

  • Obstruction to the driver’s visibility: A crack in the windshield must not obscure the visibility of the driver. This includes directly above the steering wheel, two inches from the top of the windshield and one inch from the side of the windshield.
  • Size of the cracked windshield: If a crack in the windshield is larger than three-quarters of an inch in diameter, it must be repaired.
  • Number of windshield cracks: If there are multiple cracks in the windshield that are within three inches of one another, a repair is needed.

While a crack in the windshield may appear small at first, additional fracturing or splintering of the glass can occur at any time. This could lead to more extensive windshield repair in the future, so it’s always recommended to receive an estimate for a windshield repair at our collision centers near Avon, IN, sooner rather than later.

How is a Windshield Repaired?

There are several types of patterns a cracked windshield can take. For example, a bull’s-eye pattern is often the result of surface damage from an item like a pebble. On the other hand, a floater-style crack in the windshield appears often in the middle of the glass and spreads from that impact point.

Depending on the type of cracked pattern and the above criteria, our technicians could perform a windshield repair in one of two ways:

  1. Seal the crack
  2. Replace the glass entirely

In the event that a full windshield repair is needed, you’ll feel good about our use of genuine OEM (original equipment manufacturer) glass. This high-quality glass is used and trusted by the manufacturer. As a result, you know this OEM windshield will fit your model perfectly. Since it’s made of the same thickness as the original glass, you likely won’t notice the change.

This is important since Indiana law states that a windshield repair must be the same kind of glass and of the same quality when a replacement is needed. When you visit our collision centers, our team will ensure the replacement OEM windshield adheres to this law.
