If you are in the market for a new car windshield, you may have come across two options: original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and aftermarket windshields. OEM windshields are made by the auto glass company contracted by the car manufacturer, and they bear the exact specifications of the original windshield. Aftermarket windshields are made by other glass manufacturers. Some are reverse-engineered to function just as well as OEM glass, while others are generic products that work in various types of cars.
Window glass can break for various reasons, from a stray ball to a natural disaster. Shards of window glass can be dangerous, so it is essential to take precautions. When glass breaks, take these steps to protect yourself.
1. Be Cautious
Handling broken glass happens to most people in their lifetimes, and it requires great care. If you are not cautious, you may get broken glass all over the floor, which can cause you to trip and fall.
