I normally perform 1-2 windscreen repairs per week, however, this week - I've repaired 7.
I wondered what had caused this increase (not complaining, though
), then it struck me.
We are approaching the end of the financial year. Our local authority (and your's too, I'm willing to bet) suddenly start spending money like it was about to go out of fashion. This includes the Roads Department, who suddenly realise that potholes are to be filled (not argued over, and compensated for), and that ruts need levelled & re-surfaced.
It is this action which is the source of the problem - the roads are finished off the 'lazy way', a layer of tar coupled with an extra-thick coating of loose stones, which get kicked-up by the vehicle in front, into your path. Some hit the paint, some hit the glass - most of them cause damage.
So at the risk of losing some business, keep an extra bit of distance between yourself and the traffic in front - it can make all the difference.
A wise man will learn from his mistakes - a wiser man will learn from the mistakes of others!
