According to reports from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), two specific types of crime increase in December: robbery and personal larceny. These two crimes increase usually increase by approximately 20 percent during the period. This is simply because most people who can afford it are doing a lot of shopping and others who cannot afford it still want to get some supplies by any means possible. As Yuletide quickly approaches, Discount Auto Glass, a leading windshield repair company is advising people on the best way to avoid broken windows during this period.
With several years of experience in the business, Discount Auto Glass has seen a lot of broken glass cases in this period of the year. They understand that vandalism and theft occur a lot more during the holiday season and advise people not to keep their valuable items in their vehicles during this period. According to a company’s spokesperson, ‘What we recommend is for people to take all their belongings with them when they go into stores or malls or keep their things, especially shopping bags in their trunk. They should however only do this when the trunk has no glass. The obvious reason is because when a vandal sees things from any side of the vehicle, they will go any length to take it and that includes breaking your car windows.’
A broken windshield, apart from not looking good can be extremely dangerous and life threatening because it can cause the airbag to malfunction in an accident. If a windshield is installed incorrectly or with low-quality glass, the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) may also malfunction. Therefore, it is important that the ADAS system is recalibrated after a windshield replacement and Discount Auto Glass ensures that this is done when they replace any client’s windshield.
Glass repair services can be costly, especially with no insurance so this is a good period for car owners to be extra careful. Portland glass repair company, Discount Auto Glass is also a one stop car care company that offers a variety of services which includes, chip repair, ADAS calibrations, window tinting, Permaplate, and Paint Protection Film.
