Windscreen damage normally comes in two major forms – chips and cracks.
A chip is generally damage in the windscreen that clearly marks the point of impact by debris. This point of impact can be in the form of a star break (short cracks forming outward from the centre), bulls-eye (circular), partial bulls-eye (half-moon shape) or crack chip. Cracks create a distinct line in the glass that can range from under an inch up to the width of your windscreen. They generally run horizontally in a straight or somewhat wavy line.
Depending on how severe the crack is, it is likely that the integrity of the entire windscreen has been compromised. The consequences of driving with a cracked windscreen are that every pothole you drive through and every road hump you drive over is continually stressing the glass, weakening the area around the crack and causing it to grow larger.
In addition, your visibility is going to be dramatically reduced which will make the probability of being involved in an accident higher. And in the most severe of circumstances, your auto windscreen could fail to do its job and cause the roof of your car to cave in much more easily in the event of an accident than if it were at full strength
