What is the Difference Between Front Windshield and Back Glass?

Front windshields are laminated and catch the broken glass. Rear windshields (back glass) is tempered and breaks into shards. The windshield is laminated to act as a deterrent to ejection should the driver ever be in an accident.

The backglass is tempered and shatters into shards for emergency escapes in the case of a flipped vehicle or a vehicle caught on fire. The shards are large and dull so that escaping will not injure you.
