One of the main functions of windshield glass is to keep small, flying objects and stones out. If a flying piece of stone or wood hits the auto glass with force, the glass can sustain chips and cracks. In fact, this is one of the most common causes of automotive glass damage. While driving on the road, you never know when a rock or piece of stone can come flying onto the auto glass.
The extent of damage depends on at what speed the flying object hits the windscreen of the car or SUV.
A flying object can make a crack or chip in the automotive glass. The windshield glass may sometimes develop multiple chips at a time. Also, falling debris can damage the auto glass of a car, SUV, truck, mini van, etc. For example, parking your vehicle under a tree or near a construction site can be risky. You never know when stones or other objects fall down straight onto the windscreen. All these are common incidents that often happen to car owners.
How to Prevent: Avoid tailgating other vehicles in front. If you drive too close behind another car, SUV, or truck, you will never get time to respond to a stone or rock that is coming straight onto the windscreen. Park your car under a shade or in the parking lot to avoid damage from falling debris.
