Spring has officially sprung, and the sun is out longer. Rush hour traffic now occurs when the sun is beginning to set and sometime can cause an extreme sun glare to drivers. Just before sunrise and before sunset the sun can shine directly into a driver's eyes. The Center for Transportation Safety has offered some helpful tips to drive safely when dealing with the sun glare.
- Use the sun visor to help block out the sun
- When behind another vehicle, leave more following room
- Drive with your headlights on to increase your visibility to other drivers
- Use lane markings to help guide you, if the glare is especially bad
- Polarized sunglasses can help reduce the glare
