What is the Most Overlooked Car Safety Feature? — Reasons You Need Windshield Defense

When we think of what keeps us safe in our vehicles, it’s a no-brainer that air bags and seat belts arrive on top of the list. We’re all too familiar that wearing a seat belt can save your life (thanks, Mom and Dad) and that air bags are an important safety feature in a vehicle… But what about windshields? 

Windshields probably don’t swipe to the top of your “car safety features” list, but ultimately it is the car’s structure that lends us safety and durability. Windshields aid tremendously in the strength of your car; contributing to your car’s overall integrity. Unfortunately, windshields are one of the most overlooked car safety features, so it is very important to know that facts about windshield defense. 

The Facts About Windshield Defense:

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 5 million Americans are involved in car injury-accidents per year. Thirty percent of those accidents transpired in an occupant being ejected from the vehicle. Windshields play a vital safety role if involved in a front-end collision.

Why Are Windshields An Important Safety Feature?

Like airbags, the front windshield is an essential factor in your car’s safety restraint system. During front-end collisions, the structure and durability of the windshield is essential for the structure of the vehicle’s cabin. In car accidents resulting in an overturned vehicle, the windshield supports the vehicle’s weight and prevents the roof from caving in. Your windshield is the second line of defense in a front-end collision. Rocks and other debris you encounter during adverse road conditions create dents and cracks, and either instantly or overtime, reduce your windshield’s overall strength.

The overall integrity of our vehicles is imperative to our safety and livelihood. It is also essential to protect our automobile investments.
