Windshield stops hammer from smashing through into car cabin
“Tesla may be developing “armor” glass for its upcoming Cybertruck, but the windows in its current cars appear to be pretty strong.
The built-in dashcam in a Model 3 cruising down a Canadian highway recently captured the moment a hammer bounced off the road and slammed into its windshield.
In the clip posted to the Tesla Revolution YouTube page, the tool can be seen tumbling down the Queen Elizabeth Way highway in St. Catherine, before popping up and smashing, but not penetrating, the windshield.”

This incredible video clip shows the moment the hammer (or perhaps tow hitch) is launched from the road and flung into this driver’s windshield. It all happens so fast that there was literally no time to react. Fortunately, the windshield withstood the force of impact and prevented the hammer from entering the car cabin resulting in possible injury.
