One of the most frustrating things that happens when you're driving is when the vehicle in front of you hits a stone in the road, the stone flies up and it hits your windscreen. It's never possible to 100% avoid this situation, but there are ways to reduce your risk. Wondering which roads to avoid? Which vehicles are the most threatening? Here's what you need to keep in mind if you want to avoid getting stoned.
If the windscreen on your vehicle is chipped or cracked, you don't want to put off having it repaired or replaced. Not only could you get a citation for a broken windscreen, but this could actually be compromising your safety, as the windscreen is meant to keep you in the cab if you're involved in a collision. A damaged windscreen may shatter if you were to fly forward and hit it during a collision; not only could this broken glass cause injury, but this could also mean being tossed out of the car during that accident!
