Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are regarded as safety glass. Federal auto safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windshields be laminated. When something small like a pebble hits the windshield the outer layer of glass sometimes will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up much of the impact and the inside layer of glass seldom breaks. What you often see is a little round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a cent or a quarter.
