What Can Break a Windshield?


A broken windshield on your vehicle can be a huge hassle and expense to repair. Every effort should be made to prevent breaking a windshield since the replacement cost for a passenger car’s windshield can be as high as $324, according to Cost Helper. Humans, animals and mother nature can all be responsible for breaking a windshield.


A human can break a windshield during an automobile collision. Often during a head-on crash the windshield will be broken, shattered or cracked. Humans also break windshield when they’re angry. A scorned lover may use a baseball bat or brick to break a windshield. If humans are fighting near a car and one person falls on to a car’s hood, it can also break a windshield.
