My car has a factory stone/bug deflector installed at the dealer.
For the windshield?! I can only think of things that actually work that I've seen on dune buggies and ralley vehicles, kind of begging the question what kind of car you drive.
Unless you mean those fashionable things they put on SUVs to deflect huge 4-legged bugs?
Couple of years ago I took one of the Dutch roads on a dike across the Ijsselmeer in the wrong period of year. The mosquito swarms were almost thick enough to cut with a knife.
I'm guessing that aerodynamic vehicle design also reduces the number of impacts of tiny flying critters and dirt, which will instead be deflected along with the rest of the atmosphere. And this is something where drivers of American cars have begun seeing changes a bit more recently than others O:-)
