We love the sun, but it can become a big obstacle while driving, creating temporary moments of blindness, especially right after sunrise and before sunset.
If you are on the road, here are some ways AAA suggests to reduce sun glare, which can help avoid accidents:
- Put down the sun visor to block out the sun
- Wear sunglasses, specifically a polarized pair, which offers the best protection against UVA and UVB rays.
- Give yourself time and room to react. If you’re having trouble with visibility, you’ll want to leave plenty of space between yourself and the car in front of you, and not travel so fast.
- Keep the windshield clean inside and out (and check for any cracks). Smudges make it even more difficult to see in front of you.
- Keep the dashboard clean. The less obstruction the better!
- Look for the marked lanes, and make sure you are in your lane.
Following these tips will help to make your drive a bit safer. Because after all, a sunny day makes for a happier commute and/or road trip.
