Houston, TX, December 09, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- While Houston law enforcement officials may not issue tickets or other citations to drivers of vehicles with cracked or damaged windshields this holiday season, auto glass experts say driving vehicles with cracked windshields could lead to serious accidents and even death.
Francisco Linares, owner of S Delta Auto Glass Inc. (http://www.autoglasshouston.net) said today that Houston drivers who choose to ignore cracked or damaged windshields could be playing Russian roulette with their lives and those of their families.
“It is simple really. We know that clean and properly maintained vehicle windshields allow drivers to see where they are going. It also allows them to see far ahead and possibly avoid accidents before they happen. When you drive a vehicle with damaged windshield, you take a huge risk especially during this holiday season,” Linares said in his office in Houston, Texas today.
Francisco Linares is a vehicle windshield and auto glass repair specialist with over 20 years’ experience.
He said despite knowing the danger associated with driving cars with cracked windshields, most Houston drivers choose to forgo repairing the cracks even though it is not very expensive to repair them.
“It is not very expensive to fix these windshield cracks especially if done early. The problem is that when they first notice the cracks, most vehicle owners choose to ignore them. The problem is that as they drive the cracks become wider and more costly to repair. The cracks may also begin to impair the ability of the driver to effectively navigate the roads depending on where they are positioned on the windshield,” Linares added.
The Houston auto glass replacement expert said he anticipates the volume of calls coming into his office to increase as we move closer towards the New Year.
“It happens every year. At this time as we approach the New Year, we always experience a spike in service calls. I think it is because cold weather affects windshield cracks. When the temperature becomes cold, minor cracks tend to expand. If not fixed, they become bigger problems,” Linares said.
