Inside the car is the safest place you can be during accidents. Because the windshield is a paramount barricade that prevents you from getting thrown out. If not replaced, windshields that are cracked or not installed properly may be a cause of failure at the time of collision or rolling over. This can lead to the life-threatening ejection of either you, the driver, or your passengers.
