windshield can be as important to your safety as seat
belts, air bags, tire pressure, and anti-lock brakes!
windshield does far more than protect you and your
passengers from the wind, rain and road debris. As
a critical component of your vehicle's safety system,
your windshield also plays a significant role in protecting
you in the event of an accident.
helps keep passengers inside the vehicle vs. being
ejected. The National Highway Transportation Safety
Administration estimates that each year, approximately
17,400 people are ejected through the windows of vehicles,
resulting in approximately 7,300 deaths and 7,800
serious injuries. Those who are ejected from vehicles
are 35 times more likely to be killed vs. those that
remain in the vehicle.

may be the case, but consider the following:
18 and 20 percent of your vehicle's overall structural
integrity and up to 60% of its structural strength
required during a rollover is dependent on an intact,
properly installed windshield. In the event of a rollover,
if your windshield gives way, your roof will most
likely cave in -- causing serious head and neck injury
to you and your passengers. In addition, many passenger-side
airbags depend on the windshield as a backstop and
inflate with such force that they can easily push
an improperly installed windshield right off the vehicle.
When this occurs, the airbag simply deploys onto the
hood of the vehicle instead of cushioning the passenger
as they head toward the dashboard.
