Small particles of dirt and rock can pit or crack a windshield, reducing visibility and reducing the effectiveness of windshield wipers. Although the glass may appear transparent enough to drive safely, badly pitted windshields are a safety hazard. If sunlight hits the windshield at a skewed angle, it can cause the windshield to wash out and reduce visibility to zero.

If you’re driving down the road and bright light from the sun or a vehicle blinds you, it could be due to pitting in your windshield. Pits can cause the light to shine in your eyes for a few seconds. The bright flashes can distract you and cause to run off the road or have a collide with another driver. If you carefully look at the glass on your front window, you may discover that there are glares, specks, or tiny dents. These are all symptoms of windshield pitting.
