Your windshield has a crack in it and you don’t know what to do. Should you call someone? Should you bring it to a shop? Are you tempted to just carry on with your day like nothing happened?

Ultimately, you decide that it’s not that big of a deal and you’ll continue to drive your car as is. This is a very dangerous choice.
