Exhibit Caution when Driving Toward the Sun

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Rules of the Road: Driving Tips

We all know about adjusting our driving habits during certain types of weather, such as heavy rain, thick fog or falling snow. Generally slowing down during these conditions is advised because it gives you more time to react is something that is taught in most standard defensive driving courses. There are also adjustments that need to be made when driving at night. Staying alert and increasing your field of vision with your headlights (or brights when needed) are crucial when on the road when it’s dark.

There’s one condition that isn’t given the same kind of attention as these other examples but requires that drivers are cautious; driving into sunlight. There are really two times of the day when sunlight can pose a problem for drivers: in the morning and in the evening. Those just happen to be the two times of day when there’s the most traffic as people are coming and going from work on their daily commute.

Depending on the direction your job is from your home in the morning and vice versa in the evening, you may be able to fully avoid driving into the blinding sun but if you’re someone that has experienced this problem, you certainly know how much it can obstruct your view of the road. It’s always good to have a pair of sunglasses on hand, even if they’re something you might not typically wear. Car visors also can be useful in shielding you from the intense sunlight. But was with any difficult driving condition you might face, being cautious and not being afraid to pull over if you cannot see are the best ways to approach this situation.
