Why does it matter where the impact occurred?

If the driver’s line of vision is where the impact occurred, this means damage repair is possible. However, it would be preferable to have the windshield replaced considering that your visibility is involved. If the impact happened too close to the vehicle body, it is not possible to repair the damage using the equipment required, which will result in having your windshield replaced.
