Auto Safety Glass and 4 Other Car Safety Features You Probably Take For Granted

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.
