Nissan Window Glass Breaks Into Tiny, Very Sharp Shards That Easily Get Embedded In Your Hands
I recently had the unhappy experience of having the passenger side front window of my Nissan Leaf smashed while it was parked at my son’s child development (pre-school) center. While items were taken, the biggest issue was the amount of and type of glass shards that were left all over the inside of the car, covering the seats, floor, etc. I had quite a few shards of glass embedded in my hands after cleaning up the car on-site so that I could safely transport my Son. I also got more shards stuck in my hands over the next few days due to the large volume of small shards in the car.
I use the Nissan Leaf to transport my Son almost every day and the thought of having all of this glass inside the car, that can easily embed into his hands, move to his face, lips, eyes, etc, disturbs me.
Here are some pictures of the normal sized chunks and the ones that are disturbing.
This first picture is of what you would expect from tempered “safety” glass, large chunks that can be cleaned up with a vacuum cleaner and confirmed with a visual inspection.
This second picture is of the smaller, dangerous and unsafe glass shards that are embedded in my seats, floor, headliner, made it into my hands (and some into my foot due to the fact that I was wearing sandals that day)
The third picture is more of the smaller shards, some of which traveled around my house with me.
The tiniest shards of glass are barely visible around the dime.
