Hoping Friday isn’t going to be a Monday

Sigh.

I have days where I feel like I can’t catch at a break.  This morning is one of those times.  A truck on the interstate spit gravel at me and cracked the windshield.  The car is due to be inspected by the end of the month.  I’m not sure, but I don’t think I can pass inspection with a cracked windshield.  Not surprisingly, I can’t afford this right now. 

There’s a glimmer of hope.  I called the trucking company and they’re “investigating” the situation.  I’m hopeful this will all play out with minimal frustration (and cursing, shrieking and sundry carrying on) on my part.

Sigh.

    Depending on your insurance, you may have no out-of-pocket expense for repairing the chip. I would check with you agent even if you don’t have comprehensive insurance, they often cover glass breakage.

    If you were in New England you could have that chip repaired for free

  3. Inspection depends on the size of the chip. If you can cover it with a quarter, you’re okay. At least that used to be the rule.

  4. My insurance has a $50 deductible on windshield replacement. I think they will cover the entire cost of repair . . . repairing is done by drilling the chip and injecting epoxy and then polishing.
    Trucking companies are not liable for such things as long as it didn’t fly off the back of the truck and will usually say “sorry, but oh well.” Even if it did fly off the back of the truck, ya gotta be able to prove it.

  5. Ouch! But that looks like the kind they can fix with epoxy… that should hold it until it gets HOT – or should it get BITTER COLD again…

  6. Well. The trucking company is being a dick. And I’m too tired of fighting to get people to do the right thing, so. . .
