This sounds interesting - the article is from 2000 and I guess these are on some newer vehicles, but I haven't heard about it in most cars yet. Sounds like a no-brainer way to make car theft a more difficult job.
I wonder if this is available for people who want it put on their vehicles? Might be nice to have.EPG made with polyvinyl butyral (PVB) is a new category of laminated glass designed specifically for use in vehicle side and rear windows. It deters smash-and-grab theft by increasing the time it takes to break through a vehicle window. While the glass will crack after repeated impacts, it remains adhered to the tough plastic interlayer, providing an effective barrier against smash-and-grab thieves. In fact, tests have shown that it may take up to two minutes to break into an EPG-equipped vehicle.
