How can I stop a car front glass crack?

I was driving to work on the highway a while ago and a rock hit my front window. It eventually turned into a crack, and the crack has gotten a little bit bigger. I don’t want it to grow any more! How can I stop a crack from spreading on my car’s windshield?

A crack in your car’s glass could cause some big problems if it continues to spread. A great rule of thumb is to replace or repair cracked glass as soon as you can.
However, if the crack is small, you can keep it from spreading by:
  • Applying clear nail polish or super glue to seal the crack
  • Preventing sudden temperature changes (don’t blast the heat or crank the AC)
  • Using a window repair kit
Since the damage to your car’s window was not in your control, you may be able to get some help from insurance if you comprehensive coverage is included in your policy. If you do not have comprehensive coverage, shop for a new policy with the Jerry app.
The savings keep coming even after Jerry finds you great insurance at the lowest price. Before every policy renewal period, you’ll be presented with new competitive quotes, which means you’ll always have the best coverage at the best price. If you want to switch policies, that’s fine! Jerry can help cancel your old policy.
