You may have encountered them in your travels in and around the Minneapolis, St Paul, Twin Cities area. The occasional torn up tire, pieces of busted up wood, or even a ladder or mattress. It is road debris; mainly from people who have not properly attached items to a vehicle as it travels down the road. It's particular challenging to avoid on the freeways where it can come out of seemingly nowhere. Dangerous road debris can be the cause of a windshield repair or windshield replacement, auto accidents, or even fatalities. It's a much bigger problem than many realize.

The need for side and rear window replacement isn't as typical as windshield repair or replacement as they simply don't receive the same abuse as the front windshield when driving down the highway. Accidents do happen, however, both on and off the road. Side and rear windows can in some instances be repaired, but you should be aware the nature of most damage to those windows requires a full replacement.

Modern technology allow for windshield repairs to be conducted in many common situations that occur for every driver. It’s a bit out of the ordinary as some drivers go their entire life without ever having a damaged windshield, but common enough that you probably know somebody who has had a repair performed in the past. Outside of repairs, some cases simply require a full replacement, or at times it may make more sense to do the replacement than attempt repairs.

It is interesting to note that the laminated safety glass was invented by “accident”. Frenchman, Édouard Bénédictus, discovered the process initially when he broke a flask in his shop, but was stunned when it didn't shatter. He ultimately realized the flask had contained plastic cellulose nitrate at one time which worked as a “glue” keeping the shattered glass together. While this happy “accident' occurred in 1903, he didn't obtain a patent for his laminated glass until 1909, and it wasn't until almost 20 years later, in 1927, that laminated safety glass began being used in automobile windshields.
