Hazards of Driving with a Broken Windshield

Airbag Malfunction

Airbags protect the passengers from getting injured as a result of hitting the steering wheel or the dashboard in case of any accidents. One of the most important functions of the windshield is proper deployment of airbags. It allows the airbags to deploy in a proper manner so as to cushion the passengers when the need arises. A damaged or incorrectly installed windshield will not be strong enough to provide adequate support needed for airbag deployment, leading to a malfunction.

Compromised Structural Integrity

The Windshield adds to the structural integrity of the vehicle. The strong framework supports the roof and prevents it from caving in on the event of any accidents. However, a cracked or damaged windshield is weaker in nature and may not be able to provide the necessary support.

Reduced Visibility

One of the most important functions of an effective windshield is to provide the driver with clear view of the surroundings. If the glass gets cracked or is broken, it hampers the vision of the driver, especially if the damage is in their line of sight.
