Re: @#*@#*$ windshield cracked

State Farm will pay to replace a windshield only if the crack is such that
it impairs the driver's straight ahead vision.  A crack on the passenger's
side isn't enough.  Now, when that crack extends itself to the driver's
field of view...

BTW, did you know that a crack in glass can be extended in almost any
desired direction by the application of firm pressure with a finger or
thumb near the leading edge of the crack?
