Sun glare can be a huge distraction when driving. Not only is it difficult to see the road, but it can also cause headaches and eye fatigue. In this blog post, we will discuss three ways drivers can prevent sun glare behind the wheel.
#1 - Sunglasses
The first way to reduce sun glare is to wear sunglasses. Sunglasses will not only help reduce the amount of sunlight that enters your eyes, but they will also help reduce the amount of reflected light from the road.
It may be helpful to keep a microfiber cloth within reach so you can easily clean the lenses on your glasses if they get smudged.
#2 - Adjust the Mirrors
The second way to reduce sun glare is to adjust your car's mirrors. By adjusting your mirrors, you can redirect the sunlight away from your eyes and into the side windows of your car.
Some cars have auto-dimming mirrors which can automatically reduce some of the glare from the light hitting your mirrors, but not all cars do. However, those without auto-dimming mirrors may have a way to do it manually, such as pushing down on the knob on the bottom of the rear-view mirror.
#3 - Visor
The third way to reduce sun glare is to use a visor. A visor can be attached to the top of your windshield and will deflect the sunlight away from your eyes. Some visors come with extenders that can provide even more light protection in the vehicle.
By following these three tips, you can significantly reduce the amount of sun glare behind the wheel and make driving in sunny conditions much safer. Unfortunately, not everyone is aware of these tips, and people can be involved in accidents as a result.
