Re: Windscreen stone chips.... Three in two months! Alarming.

Not much you can do unless you drive miles behind other cars but even cars coming the other way can flick up stones.

Stones in the tread of lorries can flick out when they get up to speed and there's always bit's of debris falling out the back of them.

Count chips as being lucky. Someone got killed on the M6 not long ago when some metal came through his screen. Very unlucky.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
