Oh Deer! Turtle Smashes Windshield and other Roadway Animal Hazards
For those of us who spend most of our time driving in and around the
Minneapolis, St Paul, Twin Cities area of Minnesota it's not uncommon
for us to have close calls on the roadways with animals. The mornings
and evening hours are particularly dangerous as deer and other animals
become more active, especially in the spring and fall.
While deer are responsible for about 75% of fatal accidents involving animals, other animals causing crashes include horses, moose, dogs, bears, squirrels, cats and opossums.

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably never considered what a damaged windshield might cost to either repair or replace until you actually have a broken windshield, at which point you have no idea what expense it may incur. The problem repair companies have with giving a phone estimate is each situation is different and requires an inspection in person to determine exactly what is needed to conduct the repair properly.

If you’re like most drivers, you probably don’t think much about the value and function of the windshield other than to clean it as needed. If it gets a chip, ding or crack you may decide to put off repairs as it doesn’t seem like a major problem that needs to be addressed immediately. However, nothing is further from the truth. The windshield is an integral aspect of your car’s safety and damage can only get worse. There really is no valid reason to let the repair wait until it simply has to be conducted in order to continue driving the car.
