Though newer cars are getting flashier with every passing year, there’s a lot more that goes into their design that just flashy new looks. Cars are built in a way that makes it possible for them to drive through air at high speeds. When you’re moving at around 40 MPH, you face quite the resistance from the air, which is why aerodynamics are important.
Sports cars are low and pointy so that they can cut through air better. Your car’s entire front is designed according to aerodynamics, otherwise you’d be able to feel the wind pushing against your car, making it feel both heavy and harder to control as well. Your car’s front bumper and its windshield are probably the most important steps in cutting through air; basically, this also means that this is where your car bears the most resistance from the wind as well.
Any irregularity on your car’s windshield can compromise its ability to evenly distribute wind pressure across its surface and this is why you should take even the tiniest ticks and scratches on your car’s windshield very seriously. Due to the outside pressures when your car is moving, all your car’s glass should be in top condition for safe driving. If a chip does show up anywhere on your car’s glass you have to realise that if you don’t do something about it soon, it will start to spread.
Fortunately though, there are ways for you to stop this chip from becoming a problem that can only be solved by replacing the entire glass. You can find a variety of chip repair services that can fill this chip in so that it’s no longer visible or at the risk of spreading into a full-fledged crack due to the pressure.
