Chipped glass. Windshield chip.

Don't drive behind diesel trucks!!! I know most of us punch it to get by the "bigs", but the one time I forgot (I say forgot, but really I was texting!) I got nailed by a rock. Luckily it's small. Anyone know a cheap way to fix?

There are many free windshield chip places. Around my area there are ones at the mall, mechanic shops, lots of dealerships and in all sorts of parking lots

There's safelite. Personally never used them but I've seen their commercials on tv.

I have used safelite several times. Never had any issues with them. If the tech takes their time and does it correctly, MOST chips should not be noticeable.

As a motorcycle rider I ask did you learn your lesson? Lol

As your mustang brother I say your insurance will likely cover it. Here in NC if it comes out the back a dump or like they that driver is responsible. The stay back signs are just a deterrent.
