California law is very simple when it comes to windshield repairs and replacements. If your front or rear windshield is damaged to the point of where your line of sight is negatively effected, you must have it replaced. The windshield must be replaced or repaired within 48 hours if you are pulled over by a police officer and she gives you a fix it ticket. Failure to do so can land you in jail or court. Which would you rather do, jail, court or make a quick call to Corona Windshield Repair Pros?
Windshields Can Save your Life
The first car windshields were flat and constructed of household glass. You can only imagine the destruction that ensued. No seat belts, unpaved roads and glass panels held in place by 2 to 4 pieces of metal! Thankfully, we’ve come a long way in the windshield manufacturing world. Windshields are designed to keep the roof from collapsing more than 5 inches when the vehicle is impacted by a force 1.5 times its weight. While traveling at 30 MPH, if there is a collision, 50% of the windshield should remain fixed to the vehicle.
Your windshield is shattered and now you’re worried about the replacement cost. Put those worries aside because there is a good chance that the cost is covered. Depending on the type of insurance you have, your insurance may cover it. Typically, comprehensive insurance has a windshield replacement and repair clause. Check with your insurance agent to make sure. If the deductible is $150 or less, we recommend that you pay for the replacement out of pocket. Your insurance company will increase your premium if you file a claim. When you look at it that way, it’s best to pay for the replacement yourself.
