The sun is at its lowest in the sky during winter, meaning you’re most likely to be dazzled by it when driving. Yet research from Green Flag reveals that most drivers don’t carry sunglasses in the car.
Half of those surveyed also criticised the design of in-car sun visors. Drivers explained they don’t 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% 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."
