It sounds like a line from a Dr. Seuss book, but if you are driving the highways of the Kansas City area this summer it can be all too real. When that stray pebble hits your windshield, it may start out as a tiny hole. Before you know it, your vision may be obscured by a growing “spider” expanding its way across the glass.
Can a cracked windshield shatter? The short answer is YES! Windshields are held in place with strong urethane adhesives, which prevent leaks, noise and movement of the glass. Because the glass is laminated, the entire windshield generally won’t separate from the frame. That does not mean it is safe. Your windshield’s structural integrity has been compromised.
Don’t tempt fate! Make an appointment to have your car’s windshield replaced by the A-Team. That’s the team of auto care professionals at Able Auto Service. They are one of the top places in the KC Metro for car repair, etc. Able Auto Service is located at 837 Osage Ave. in Kansas City KS. Call ahead for a convenient appointment at (913) 321-1030.
