Sun Glare Danger

August 13, 2020  |  By:  Kevin Henderson

There are countless cases each year of collisions caused by drivers who are unable to see due to the glare from the sun. These collisions are often made worse because the driver whose vision is impacted by sun glare often does not see an object before the collision, and therefore does not attempt to slow down before impact.

While the hazard of sun glare will always be an issue for drivers, there are several steps you can take to reduce the impact of sun glare on your ability to drive:

– Wear polarized sun glasses
– Use your sun visor
– Slow down or pull over if sun is impacting ability to see
– Ensure that windshield is clean both inside and out
– Ensure that cracks in the windshield, which can distort light, are repaired immediately
– Leave more space between you and the vehicle in front of you
– Consider an alternate route

By following these simple steps, you can do your part to keep our roads safe.
