Today I got pulled over in san Bernardino county for a cracked windshield. The crack is well on the passenger side & has been like that for 20 years. According to CA law code & section 26710. It is unlawful to operate any motor vehicle upon a highway when the windshield or rear window is in such a defective condition as to impair the drivers vision either to the front or rear. I can clearly see front to back with no problem whatsoever. The cop said to get the windshield fix within the next few weeks or else next time it will be a ticket. My ticket is a correctable violation & I am not sure what the fee will be & what I can do do to fix this problem besides replacing the windshield. My vision is NOT impaired & he knew that.

Get the window fixed, we had a fix it ticket last year, we just got the window fixed & got signed off on it. Call around for a few quotes. It is a pain, but such is life. We had planned on getting the repair done anyhow, this just speeded it up.

Yes, you will have to get the window replaced and then have an officer sign off on the ticket.

When we had it signed off, we were told the local police station charged for it, but the CHP do it for free. So see what is the norm in your location.

No offense, but why in the world would anyone drive around with a noticeably cracked windshield for 20 years?

Car still running for 20 years, obviously never did any real maintenance to the car since he drove with a cracked windshield. Pretty amazing. Toyota?

I'm impressed you got away with it for two decades. Ought to have been able to save up enough to cover the deductible in that length of time.

Have you checked with your insurance company? Our policy covers windshields with no deductible.

It was in the front windshield on the passenger side. It cost is $149 to get it replaced, while we waited at a local shop. We were going to get it done before the winter came anyhow.
