This may sound a little arrogant in its simplicity, but

The windshield cracks mostly when rocks fall out of the sky and hit it.. or it hits them.

So if you can avoid places where it seems to rain rocks that would be a good first step. If you can not avoid those places try not to hit them as hard... by driving more slowly.

Partial list of places where it rains rocks:

1. Behind gravel trucks on the freeways.
2. Behind trucks without mudflaps on the freeways.
3. Behind any vehicle following in the path of a gravel truck on a freeway.
4. Behind any vehicle with one tire on the shoulder.
5. Behind any vehicle with one or more wheels in the center of a lane on a farm to market road.
6. Behind any vehicle towing a flatbed trailer that may have ever carried anything that gets muddy.
7. Behind any vehicle towing a flatbed trailer that may have ever carried anything that gets muddy when it goes over a bump in the road like at the end of a bridge.

anyway... drive in the center lane and don't tailgate.

Good luck. Knock on wood.
