Family holidays are meant to be relaxing. It’s when you can enjoy yourself and spend some quality time with your family. However, a crack in the windscreen during this family holiday can be a deal-breaker. It will sour your mood and that of your family especially if the holiday involves a road trip. Driving with a cracked windscreen isn’t safe and you might have to halt your holiday to get it fixed. However, it can be very difficult to find a mechanic or windscreen service in the middle of nowhere. What should you do then? Let’s find out.

Try Repairing the Crack Yourself

DIY windscreen repair isn’t that difficult. If the crack is a small one then you should be able to fix it yourself using a DIY windscreen repair kit. However, to do that you need to have this kit in your car along with the other road trip essentials like spare wheel and jack. If the repair kit is available then you can try repairing the crack yourself. You will need to strictly follow all the instructions given on the manual to ensure that the repair work goes according to plan. However, at any time, if you don’t feel confident about doing the windscreen repair yourself, you should stop. You don’t want to make the crack even worse.

Call Roadside Assistance

Roadside assistance is there to help you out in such situations. They can come to your aid no matter where in the country you are. Just give them a call and wait patiently inside the car. Since travelling with a cracked windscreen isn’t safe, you shouldn’t be driving at all. Park the car at one side of the road and put out signs, if you have them. This will help other vehicles on the road know about your predicament. The roadside assistance will inform you about the time it will take for them to reach your location. Once they arrive, they will take care of the situation. They will staff of the roadside assistance will assess the condition of the windscreen and decide whether it can be repaired or it needs to replaced.
