During this time of year, drivers find themselves commuting during sunrise and sunset. Drivers dealing with the glare of the sun face the disadvantage of dimished sight and decreased field of view. The Motor Vehicle Lighting Council offers these great tips:

Driving with sun glare

  • Correct cleaners: Avoid vinyl cleaners that give your dashboard a high-gloss finish as it can turn your dash into a mirror. This is called "veiling glare."

  • Good glasses: Wear sunglasses with polarized lenses, which, unlike ordinary lenses, are designed to cut through glare.

  • Visor advised: To avoid getting momentarily blinded by sun glare, anticipate areas where glare may be a factor and lower your visor beforehand.
