Can I drive with a cracked windscreen?

You’re probably wondering whether you can still drive with a cracked windscreen. Well, for starters, it’s actually illegal to drive with a damaged windscreen, particularly if the crack hinders the driver’s line of vision or impacts on the safety of the vehicle.

A minor chip should be attended to before it grows. You should, however, get it repaired as soon as possible to prevent too much damage and any future issues

Do home windscreen repair kits work?

Windscreens are the windows of a car. They are vital to both the safety and comfort of the driver and passengers.

Many people who have experienced the damage caused by stone chips, hail, vandalism or theft may be considering buying a windscreen repair kit in order to save themselves some money. However, it is important that you know if they work before you buy one.

There are many factors to consider when deciding on which windscreen repair kit to buy including whether it is for use at home or in a workshop, what other tools you will need, how much DIY experience you have etc.

Modern windscreens are designed to protect your passengers in a collision. If you have cracks or chips in your car glass or windscreen, it’s not safe for yourself or your car passengers.

Is it illegal to drive with a cracked windscreen?

It is illegal to drive with a cracked windscreen. Windscreens protect the passengers in the car from flying debris that could potentially cause injury in an accident. They are often made out of tempered glass, which means that a car glass window can withstand high levels of impact without shattering. The law states that the windscreen should be free from any cracks or chips. When there are cracks or chips on the glass, you can’t guarantee the safety of your passengers in an accident. Why not contact a local windscreen repair company?

Can windscreen be repaired or should it be replaced?

Windscreen chip repairs are fairly easy to do, usually the only criteria that needs to be met is for it to not be too large or positioned in the line of sight of the driver. If the glass is broken, it cannot be fixed, and a replacement is needed. A damaged or weakened windscreen is at risk of being blown out when a car’s airbag deploys on impact.

A windscreen can be repaired if.

  • Fixing the damage to the windscreen will not reduce the safety of the vehicle should there be an accident.
  • The crack is shorter than a xxxx R1 coin and is not in the line of vision of the driver.
  • The outer layer of the windscreen is all that was damaged.
  • Repairing the damage will not cause it to be unsafe in case of impact or collision.

A windscreen should be replaced if.

  • A crack starts from the edge of the windscreen and finishes there as well.
  • The glass has been repaired before.
  • Damage to the glass is more extensive than what can be seen on the surface
  • You can see a notable separation of the laminate bonding layer at the site of the required repair.

My Glass services comply with all local safety standards and most international standards. Our products carry the following safety standard ratings:

Can client safety be guaranteed?
Yes. The products My Glass stock are designed according to the highest international safety standards as well as certain OEM specifications. We also only use OEM approved bonding agents.
Is imported glass of inferior quality?
No. All our imported glass products are insurance approved, and meet the exact same local standards as the locally produced glass. There is a perception that has been created in the South African market place by competitive brands that ‘Chinese Glass’ is not ‘shatterproof, insurance approved ‘Chinese glass’ not only complies with South African standards, but with global standards such as ISO/TS 16949:2009, which is a specification for suppliers that supply OE quality products.
Are all the My Glass products Shatterproof?
Yes. A distinction needs to be made between ‘Shatterprufe®’ and ‘Shatterproof’. ‘Shatterprufe®’ is a trademark. ‘Shatterproof’ is a safety characteristic which refers to the construction and physical properties of the windscreen. Laminating two pieces of glass stops the glass from shattering into splinters, hence SHATTERPROOF. All windscreens legally sold in South Africa are shatterproof. That means they all comply with the SABS standard, which requires them to be resistant to penetration and disintegration by being manufactured with a laminated vinyl core.
Is there an excess waiver (zero excess) when replacing or repairing glass with My Glass?
In most cases yes and only on the Fuyao, Xinyi, Benson and USG products. It is advised that you check with your local My Glass service consultant or broker before you carry out the work..
