Re: Blasted cracked windshields

I see a few rust-bucket specials with cracks all the way across. I don' tknow how they get away with it.

Re: Blasted cracked windshields

When you live in an area that is mostly exposed rocks (Rocky Mountains) you learn to expect windsheild chips and cracks as the cost of driving around here. All my cars have at least one chip but no cracks. I had one star crack repaired once and the repair created a much larger crack. The repair company paid to have the windshield replaced. A week later..you guessed it...a new chip. I had it filled last week to keep it from getting worse.

It is according to your state law... here, as long as it does not 'interfere' with your vision you can have cracks... who gets to decide?? The inspections stations..

In Colorado, there are no inspectors.

Because they look like they probably cant afford to pay a ticket.

Hence its a waste of time to pull them over and write one. Hmm?

In my area, most insurance covers glass with a $100 deductible, and many repair shops eat the hundred bucks to get the repair business.
