Will my tire pop if I run over glass?
There are two reasons why driving over glass won’t pop your tires—one has to do with the glass, and the other has to do with your tires. Glass from automobiles (the most common kind of glass you’ll find on roads) is safety glass. It’s designed to break into small, nugget-like pieces without many sharp ends.
Can you drive over broken car glass?
Under California Vehicle Code section 26710, it is illegal to operate any motor vehicle on the highway if the windshield or rear window is in such a defective condition that it would impair your vision as the driver, either in front or when looking to the rear.
Does insurance cover a broken car window?
Yes, glass damage is usually covered by your comprehensive insurance unless the damage was caused during an accident, at which point your collision coverage or the other driver’s liability coverage may apply.
