The Performance of Automobile Glazing in Urban Accidents 690807

Laminated glass windshields have not yet been demonstrated to be safer than a less expensive, single sheet of tempered glass. Data from injury-producing urban traffic accidents in Australia, involving tempered glass windshields, reveal that while the windshield is a major cause of injuries, they were generally slight and rarely disfiguring.
By modifying the method of mounting the tempered windshield and by controlling the particle count near the periphery of the windshield, the risk of laceration may be greatly reduced.
