How can window tint protect me in the event of an accident?

Window tint will offer an additional barrier between you and the glass. When tint fully cures, it bonds to the glass and strengthens the glass itself. If anything is shot or thrown at the glass the tint will hold the glass in place preventing the glass from breaking. If the glass does shatter the tint holds all of the broken pieces in place preventing anything from falling and cutting you or any passengers you may have in the car.
