It is not fun to have a cracked damaged or broken windshield or side window on your car. In fact, it can be quite scary to think it might shatter or come crashing into the car.

Modern-day windshields are quite complex, some have antennas in them, some have defrosters, some have a sunshade built-in, and more. Things like front collision sensors may be mounted just behind the windshield as well.
