Check Your Windscreen Before Heading Off on Your School Holiday Adventure

D & C Auto Glass knows that as the school holidays approach, it’s time to start thinking about packing up the car and hitting the road for a well-deserved break. But before you do, DC Auto Glass in Perth wants to remind you of an often-overlooked aspect of vehicle safety – your windscreen.

The Importance of a Well-Maintained Windscreen

The windscreen is one of your car’s most important safety components. It provides up to 30% of the vehicle’s structural strength, and in the event of a collision, it helps prevent the roof from collapsing. It’s also crucial for visibility, protecting you from wind and weather, and contributing to your overall driving comfort and experience.

However, even minor chips or cracks can weaken the windscreen and put you and your family at risk. That’s why we’re urging you to take a moment to check your windscreen before heading out on your school holiday adventure.

Checking Your Windscreen: What to Look For

Not sure what to look for when checking your windscreen? Here’s a short checklist:

  • Chips or Cracks: Even small ones can quickly grow, especially under temperature changes or when travelling on rough roads.
  • Scratches: These can impair your vision, particularly when driving into the sun or at night.
  • Damage around the edges: This can weaken the overall integrity of the windscreen.
  • Dirty or Damaged Wipers: These can leave smears across the windscreen, affecting visibility.

If you spot any of these issues, it’s best to address them right away, before they become bigger problems down the road (literally!).
