Drivers in the east of England are the most likely to have their windscreen damaged, according to new research.
A study carried out by Churchill found that motorists living in East Anglia and the South of England were most likely to encounter windscreen problems due to the large amount of debris left on the roads by farm machinery.
Other areas with high levels of windscreen claims include London, central England and the south-west.
Claire Foster, a spokesperson for Churchill, commented: "It is important to get windscreens fixed as soon as they are damaged, even when it is the smallest crack. If drivers fail to fix the damage, this could impair people's vision whilst driving.
"Many people do not realise that windscreen claims will not affect their no claims discount under most insurance policies, so there is no sense in delaying the inevitable."
According to Auto Glass, drivers should check their windscreens regularly, keeping an eye out for small circular indentations and star-shaped cracks.
