As if teaching people to drive wasn’t dangerous enough, a driving instructor had a narrow escape from injury when a scaffolding plank flew off the back of a builder’s truck and hit his car windscreen. The windscreen was smashed and the Peugeot 208’s dashboard was scraped by the heavy plank, in an incident that was caught by the driving instructor’s dashcam. Darren Willett was driving at about 50 miles per hour on his way to
Even though it’s summer we are still under threat of severe weather, including thunderstorms and heavy rain, which brought the subject of water repellent windscreen coatings to mind. Have you ever tried them? People have mixed reactions to the thought of covering their vehicle windscreen with a coating of some kind – will it work, will it affect your vision and will it come off or get damaged easily? According to the experts, having a
I don’t know about you, but I always feel a bit nervous if I have to drive under a bridge that has people standing on it, especially if they’re hanging around the sides and watching the traffic underneath. I dread the thought of a missile coming crashing through my car windscreen and causing a dangerous incident, maybe even a fatality. Sadly, throwing missiles at passing vehicles is a popular ‘sport’ for some mindless individuals, and
Do you plan to take your car overseas this summer? A great many motorists do and it gives you a great deal of freedom to go wherever you want to, but there are some things you need to be aware of before you go and while you’re away. For example, a recent survey revealed that over half the motorists questioned didn’t know whether their car insurance covered them for driving overseas. One third thought their
I came across an interesting case the other day when reading industry news items. It concerned a car that was parked within a sports ground got hit by a hockey ball which cracked the windscreen. The sports venue was the property of a school which was hosting an inter-school hockey match, and the car was parked near a tennis court while the owner watched her child take part in the match. The stray hockey ball

Is it a good idea? Let’s look at the options available to the motorist who has a chipped windscreen and would like to carry out the repair themselves. A chipped windscreen is a common problem; it only takes a single flying stone or other debris from the roads to cause a chip or a nick, and if you don’t get it repaired quickly there is a danger of it developing into a cracked windscreen, leaving
It’s a fact of life that not all insurance policies are created equal, so it is really important to read the small print, no matter how dull that sounds. Take vehicle windscreen and auto glass damage cover – these are the most frequent type of claims made on vehicle insurance policies, with claims related to damaged windscreens and windscreen replacements being the biggest of the lot. If you don’t check exactly what cover you have
A Warrington driver hit and left a 47 year old cyclist for dead on the A57 Warrington Road, and then contacted his insurers to try to get them to pay for his cracked windscreen. He falsely claimed that a collision with a wheelie bin had caused the damage. Michael Rollason, aged 39, had a chatty conversation with his insurance provider about the state of his no-claims bonus, and whether it was a good idea to
As we have mentioned before, your car windscreen does much more than just keep the rain and wind out of your face while you drive, and it’s certainly not just a simple piece of glass. It is an important factor in the vehicle’s structural strength, and consists of a highly complex bonded structure with incredible resilience – in fact, a miracle of modern technology. Having said all that, there are some tasks that as a
