Your windshield is a part of the safety restraint system of your vehicle, and the importance of having your windshield properly installed cannot be overstated. There are many ways in which the windshield contributes to driver and passenger safety.
The main components of the safety restraint system of any vehicle are the windshield, airbags and seat belts. The windshield supports the roof and also the passenger side airbags during deployment. If the windscreen gets detached, the airbags will not deploy properly- this can have catastrophic consequences in an emergency situation. It also preserves the structural integrity of the passenger compartment and keeps it from collapsing and crushing the passengers during a crash.
