How long can I drive with a crack in my windshield?

So it just happened one day. In fact, you’re not even sure how it happened. But it did. And now you’ve got a nice crack in your windshield. A little one. But before you know it, it will be a big one. So how long can you go before you get that crack repaired?

The answer that you were dreading. It depends.

The glass on your windshield is very fragile. It is glass after all. Your windshield is designed to protect you and your occupants from wind, rain and the elements. You don’t want to risk your safety over a crack. But you don’t have to get it done right this second either. You can schedule it at a time that is convenient for you.


How big is the crack? If your crack is really long, you know that it will just continue to spread. The bigger the crack, the weaker your windshield is. That means it will provide you with the least amount of protection.


Where is the crack in your windshield? Is it in your field of vision? Is it off to the right of the windshield? You don’t want a crack to interfere with how you see through the windshield. When you need to get your windshield repaired or replaced, it’s something that you do for your own safety.


Is your crack growing bigger every day? It most likely is and you don’t even realize it. A crack is exasperated and grows with the fluctuations in heat and cool temperatures. In fact, a carwash on a hot day can crack your windshield. You don’t ever want to take your hot windshield and spray it directly with cold water. Did you know that even small potholes can cause cracks to grow even more? Stop wondering where the crack will stop!
