What is a windshield bully?

A windshield bully is a shady auto glass repairman who tries to force their services on car owners that do not actually need auto glass or windshield repair. They often prey upon car owners in parking lots, at car washes, and even at home. They will typically approach the car owner claiming that their is auto glass damage on their car that they can replace for cheap. They will sometimes claim that their are new state laws that guarantee them a free windshield replacement.

Windshield bullies should be completely avoided for a number of reasons. First, they typically recommend that you get an auto glass repair that you do not actually need. Their services are typically sub-par and will often need to be redone by  a professional. Also, they will promise that your insurance will cover the service 100%. Unfortunately, you will probably find that your insurance company cannot help you with the illegitimate service. Avoid speaking to any door-to-door salesmen offering auto glass services. Also, always speak to your insurance company to make sure you are actually covered for auto glass services.

Car Tips for Traveling with your Dog

Traveling with your dog is a great way to make your vacation or trip a lot more fun. Many families and dog owners don’t want to to leave their best friends at home and are planning dog friendly trips. If you aren’t flying, this means you will be bringing your dog in your car with you. Traveling with your dog can be stressful, but if you are properly prepared it can be a great time. Try these tips to better enjoy traveling with your dog:

  • Use a crate when traveling with your dog. If your dog is not used to being in a crate, start introducing them to the crate over the course of a few weeks before the trip. You’ll want your dog to be comfortable with being in the crate. You might feel bad about putting your furry friend away into a crate, but this is the safest place for a dog in a car.
  • Keep your dog well-hydrated at all times and take frequent urination breaks.
  • Have small snacks ready for your dog. Big meals are a bad idea because of car sickness, but small snacks are okay.
  • Never leave your dog unattended in a closed car. Even with the windows cracked, your car becomes an oven fast for a dog.

Gorilla Glass Could Be Used in Automobiles

Gorilla Glass, which, if you own a smartphone, might be in your pocket or purse right now, could be making its way into your car as well. The glass, made by Corning, is a chemically-strengthened glass that is used by most major smartphone manufacturers.

The glass is very strong and durable, and at the same time lightweight. This makes Gorilla Glass perfect for smartphones, but Corning claims it would be an ideal material for windshields as well. Automakers are always looking to make their vehicles lighter to improve fuel efficiency, which is one of the most important selling points for automobiles in today’s market. The lightweight Gorilla Glass would help automakers improve upon this point. Additionally, as more vehicles use heads up displays, the optics friendly Gorilla Glass would be advantageous for windshields.

While Gorilla Glass has clear advantages, the costs are much higher than normal windshields. Production costs on a mass scale would put be substantially increased. Corning says it is most likely several years off until Gorilla Glass is seen in automobiles.
