LFC (for Lastik,
Cam, Far Sigortası) is the Turkish
abbreviation for "Tire,
Glass, Headlight Insurance."
By far the most common damage to
cars in Turkey is from stones thrown
up by other cars, or shaken from trucks.
It's happened to me a few times: a
car passes at high speed, kicks
up stones along the edge of
the highway, stones are only going
about 10 miles per hour as they hang
in the air but you (and your windshield
and headlights) are going 50 miles
breaks. No tragedy, but
no fun either.
Surprisingly, damage to tires, windshield,
windows, headlights and other auto
glass is often not covered in standard
Replacement windshields (windscreens)
and headlights (-lamps) may be cheaper
in Turkey than they'd be in your home
country--at least in Australia, Europe
or North America--, so you may simply
decide you'll have any damage
repaired before you return
the car to the renter.
I've done this for a cracked headlight,
which is more common than a cracked
windshield. The headlight cost a modest
amount (compared to what I might have
paid in the USA) and the guy who sold
it to me installed it for free.
Of course, if I hadn't been following
so closely, or going so fast, etc....
But really, sometimes a flying stone IS unavoidable.
