The Cost of Not Replacing Your Windshield in Medicine Hat

Did you know that Alberta has laws against cracked windshields? Truly, a windshield is one of the key safety features of your car. Worse than that, if you are pulled over with a cracked windshield, Alberta’s regulations on drivers’ visibility allow officers to warn you, hand out fines (up to $500), or even an order to remove your vehicle from the road.

With possible fines, and safety issues such as:

  • increased risk of injury (to driver or passengers) during an accident
  • decrease in visibility while on the road
  • the need for a costly and full windshield replacement in the future (plus possible fines)

It really is important to replace your windshield if you have a chip more than 12mm in diameter, or a crack that in anyway impedes the drivers’ vision of the road. Many times, if it is a smaller chip, windshield repair may be an option.
