Another distraction that can result in the need for auto glass repair is the radio. While it can be fun to jam out to your favorite tunes in the car, you should do so responsibly. If a song comes on that you don’t like, try to wait until you’ve come to a stop before searching your playlist for something better. Even turning the dial on the radio can become a distraction that endangers those around you.
