Generally speaking, it is illegal to drive a vehicle with a cracked or broken passenger window in Perth. And unlike a windscreen, where a crack or chip can be repaired, side and rear windows are made from tempered glass rather than laminated.
Also known as safety glass, has been designed to shatter into small pieces when broken to minimise the risk of injury to passengers from large shards. Even the smallest of crack on a passenger or rear window cannot be repaired and must be replaced.
Plus, leaving your vehicle with a smashed side window makes it more vulnerable to theft and weather damage, so we recommend getting it replaced straight away. Need a rear or passenger window replacement? Contact Dean’s Auto Glass now.
At worst, a cracked windscreen will also considerably compromise your overall car safety in the event of a collision and put you in an even more dangerous situation than it is already.
So, to put is plainly: no, it isn’t safe but we can help you replace this windscreen quickly.
