Too many lives are lost when children and animals are left in hot cars and Mobile Glass will no longer stand by idle. Almost everyday throughout the summer we all hear the stories of small children, dogs and even cats being trapped in hot cars. It’s time for Mobile Glass to take a stand in the best way we can with our #Smash2SaveALife Awareness Campaign.
We want to get the word out that no one should worry about the cost of replacing a vehicle’s window when saving a life. Don’t hesitate, don’t wait, #Smash2SaveALife and we’ll pick up the tab for car window replacement. We want to do our part to help Good Samaritans in times of crisis. Mobile Glass offers free car window replacement for any vehicle’s window that was broken to save a child, pet or any life. Don’t think twice, save a life!
The chief concern when faced with such a dilemma is “What is my personal cost or responsibility for acting?” Breaking someone’s door glass to save a life may still be considered damage to property leaving the hero at risk, but not anymore. Mobile Glass will cover the full cost of replacement; both part and labor. Our only requirement is a corresponding Police Report or sufficient video evidence.

Lake Travis Mobile Glass on Fox 7 News Austin
On Friday June 23rd our #Smash2SaveALife Campaign in Austin got a HUGE bump from RaeAnn Christensen and Fox 7 News with their report “Local glass company hoping to help save pets and children left in hot cars.” It was a pleasure to have Kristen assist in bringing our 3 Mobile Glass Mascots (3 Great Danes shown at the top of this post) to meet RaeAnn and discuss the dangers of hot cars and pets/children. RaeAnn was a really friendly and informed reporter; she was even showing us the true temperature of the ground and surfaces. I mention this because I learned something quite shocking -my guess would be 120 or so for the sidewalk, but actually it was over 140 degrees!! That could easily burn puppy paws!
