Failure to carry this insurance can lead to a driver’s license suspension or even the suspension of your vehicle’s registration. To avoid this, you can get auto insurance in Phoenix Arizona quite easily by going online.

It is important to remember that if you are moving to Phoenix Arizona, your old car insurance may not be acceptable. Phoenix, AZ has requirements for auto insurance that might be a bit higher than those found in other states, so you need to make sure that you call your insurance company as quickly as possible after moving to find out if your coverage is still adequate. In Phoenix Arizona, you must have:

–  Coverage for bodily image liability in the amount of at least $15,000 per person and $30,000 per accident.
–  A minimum of $10,000 in Property Damage Liability Coverage
–  Uninsured motorist insurance in the amount of $15,000 per person and $30,000 per accident

Even with these minimums, you might still want more coverage. You should always speak to your insurance representative to find out the best coverage for your lifestyle.

The Importance Of Keeping Your Auto Glass In Top Condition

Monday, November 24th, 2014

Many people take auto glass for granted. Its purpose seems so simple, after all: it lets you look out without wind and rain getting in, just like any other window. However, appearances can be deceptive. In fact, the glass in your windshield is often intended to do far more than function merely as a window. A car is made up of many different components, but they all work together in harmony to produce a single design, and the windshield factors into this in a big way. Not only does the windshield keep you protected from wind and rain, but it also keeps you safe in an accident.

Windshield Safety

Early windshields were installed to keep the wind and bugs out of your face. While this worked, it did not recognize the importance of the structure of the vehicle and the large area that it needs to protect in an accident. Ordinary glass tends to shatter into extremely dangerous shards, and combining it with a high-speed collision is a recipe for disaster. Furthermore, windshields were installed using gaskets (rubber seals)  to hold the glass to the body of the vehicle. No modern glass company sells this sort of windshield any more for precisely this reason. Instead, modern designs are intended to avoid shattering dangerously and now use a urethane (glue) to better hold the glass to the body keeping you safer in a collision or roll-over accident.

Structural Support

It’s hard for many people to imagine a pane of glass being used as a structural member, but this practice is common in everything from skyscrapers to smartphones. Many modern phones have very little strength or stiffness without the glass in the display. Your car is similar. The windshield is expected to provide a significant degree of support for the roof in the case of a roll-over accident.


It is obvious that auto glass is a really important part of your car. More significantly, it must be in top condition in order to fulfill its intended role. If the glass has been cracked or chipped, it is far more likely to give way at an inopportune moment. It is important to consider that a damaged windshield replacement may result in your car being far safer overall. A good glass company may be able to repair minor damage to your glass, but in more severe cases it is very important to replace the entire pane for maximum safety.
