Sunrises and sunsets are two of the most scenic times to take a drive. However, they can also be two of the most dangerous due to glaring sunlight. Many drivers fail to realize the dangers of driving into direct sunlight as a potential for accidents until it too late. Here are some tips and advice that can make your drive into a glaring sun safer.

Many accidents can be avoided simply by preparing for hazardous road conditions. When dealing with glare, consider the following tips:

  • Sunglasses- Wear sunglasses to minimize or reduce glare.
  • Reduce speed- Drive slower when glare makes it harder to see the road in front of you.
  • Use your visor- Your car's visor can block direct sunlight from obscuring your vision.
  • Follow lane markers- If you can't see directly in front of you, use the lane markers as a guide.
  • Drive at different hours- If possible, make your commute before sunrise or after sunset to avoid driving when the sun's glare is at its worst.
