    If hard stuff hits your windshield you are going to get chips.

    I had 3 in one year back in the 80s but only one since. (bad enough to need replacement).

    Is is NOT normal for windshields to get chipped by small rocks kicked up by the tires on the vehicle in front of you. That is because most people do not tailgate. If your windshield gets chipped it means you were following too close.

      I hope YOU get one tomorrow, following at 200 feet. My county has some major roads Constantly "in repair", loose gravel is very common. Even at the signed 25 mph, it Happens. ID think UR 70---you act 19.

    They aren't particularly fond of you either. As a matter of fact, they'd prefer you just stay the **** home working people can get things done

    Yes; you'll want to increase your following distance. Especially behind trucks, and especially on roads that aren't perfectly smooth.

    Hello dumbass car owner Micks - yes it's normal. Learn to not follow closely behind pickup trucks and SUV'\s with oversize offroad tires or any vehicles and trailers with multiple rear axles because they are all very likely to kick up loose stones and gravel on the road surface.

    I have never gotten a chipped windscreen. Perhaps it is because I always leave lots of distance from car in front.

      Or your roads are all mud and there is no Constant Construction going on...
