Janice has had to replace 5 windshields in the last two years. She polled her colleagues and they’ve had similar windshield problems. Have windshields gotten flimsier? Tom says windshields are flimsier as car manufacturers try to reduce weight to improve mileage. Still, 5 windshields in two years is excessive--there may be a gravel pit nearby causing more loose gravel to be on the road. Or it could be a conspiracy by the local glass replacement company--Butchy’s Auto Glass and Sand and Gravel.
