Avoid winter glare from the sun

Avoid winter glare from the sun

Winter, when the sun is low in the sky is the time of year when you’re most likely to be dazzled by the sun. Yet research conducted by Green Flag revealed that most drivers don’t carry sunglasses in the car.

Many drivers were also critical of the design of in-car sun visors. Half of those surveyed by Green Flag said sun visors do not come down low enough to block the sun's rays, causing them to sit up higher in their seats in an attempt to avoid the glare.

Green Flag’s head of transformation Nick Reid added: “Our survey did find that 30 per cent of drivers would slow down if dazzled when on an unfamiliar road. We suggest drivers always keep a pair of sunglasses close to hand in the car, even if it is a cold winter's day.”
