Rich Lutton, owner of Metro Glass, says, "I don't think most people know that your windshield is actually a federal safety device."
Lutton says that in a front-end collision, your passenger-side airbag will slam into your windshield at 200 miles-per-hour. That windshield braces it to protect your passenger.
Replacing the windshield is precision business. The area has to be completely cleaned before the new glass is added.
Rich says, "It's not like Detroit putting in a new windshield in a vehicle. They have very strict legislation on how they're supposed to put it in but there's no windshield to take out first. So we actually have to remove it and then clean that area and put the proper chemicals down."
