Did you know it is illegal to drive with a broken or cracked windshield in the state of Arizona? According to the official driver’s manual, all vehicles must have a windshield free of cracks. Law enforcement will issue tickets to those who violate this regulation, with fines amounting to over $100 along with the stipulation that the windshield must be repaired within in so many days. Fortunately, by contacting Tempe Auto Glass and making an appointment, area drivers can avoid expensive fines and have cracked windshields replaced quickly and professionally.
Replacing cracked windshields in any vehicle requires knowledge of removing the old windshield without damaging the outside of the windshield, properly cleaning the area and inserting a new windshield so that it fits correctly and remains in place. Tempe Auto Glass technicians are trained installers experienced in the art of windshield replacement and can provide customers with quality work at affordable prices.
Tempe Auto Glass uses only high-quality materials and adhesives to replace cracked windshields (front and back) as well as any other damaged window in any type of vehicle. Customers receive only the best laminated and safety glass available on the market, with installation times usually taking less than an hour. Further, technicians are always ready to answer any questions you may have about your new windshield and what you can do to maintain the integrity of your windshield for as long as you own your vehicle.
Steps you can take to protect your windshield from cracking include driving slowly when traveling across loose gravel and staying far behind trucks carrying dirt, rocks or other debris that could fly off the truck and strike your windshield. In addition, some forms of window tinting may reduce the risk of experiencing chips and cracks. Window tinting may also prevent broken glass from scattering during an accident. Ask Tempe Auto Glass technicians about employing other methods useful for prolonging the life of your windshield.
Frequently, a small chip remains dormant for a long time, not getting any bigger or changing in appearance, which makes vehicle owners complacent about getting it repaired. Unfortunately, a small chip can turn into a large crack due to hitting a bad bump in the road or because of sudden temperature changes. To avoid driving in a potentially unsafe vehicle or receiving a traffic ticket, have your damaged windshield inspected and repaired in a timely manner by Tempe Auto Glass technicians.
