If there is one thing Calgarians all have in common, no matter what area of the city you live in, it’s a cracked windshield.

When I moved here from New Brunswick 12 years ago, I don’t think I even knew what a cracked windshield looked like, and now I’ve had more cracks than I have had cars. Thanks to the city’s and province’s snow removal strategy that involves places gravel on roads, your windshield is often the thing that you need to repair the most.  

Even something as small as a chip can turn into a crack, which is not only annoying to look at, can put you increased risk of an accident. I think my biggest fear is that the glass smashes as I’m driving!  And it’s so stressful how when you have a perfectly clear windshield, every little rock that taps the glass gives you a heart-attack. And yet, when the rock comes that breaks your glass, it’s like you can see it a mile away and in slow-motion. Ugh. It’s the worst feeling!

So if you’ve somehow made it through one of the worst winters in recent memory without a  least a chip in your windshield, you should go out and buy a lottery ticket, because you are clearly the chosen one!

But if you’re like the rest of us, now that winter seems to finally be melting away, it’s getting safer to drive without fear of a rock ruining your day.
