If the windshield is bad enough for a citation, his insurance should cover it. Has he checked?
My friend can only afford liability. The rest of his pay goes for gas, so there is no coverage for the glass.

As far as the windshield, keep in mind that different areas get different pricing. Depending on the market. Our price came up 160.00 for the glass, labor is 45.00 (flat rated) and the urethane adhesive is 25.00. This price is pretty typical here in my area of PA and may be higher/lower in your area.
Best thing to do is to CALL AROUND FOR PRICING!!!! If you are paying cash, keep in mind that auto glass is a cut throat business and most companies will do whatever is necessary to get you as their customer! But... do not compromise them doing the job right just for price. Your friend will pay for it later with possible leaks or even worse, RUST a year or 2 down the road!!
One last thing, PLEASE DO NOT "TRY" AND DO IT YOURSELF!!!
Recent article. They say windshield "repair" but it is actually from a windshield replacement not installed correctly!
PM me if you have any other questions.
