Protect Against Sun Glare
Sunglasses may be a popular fashion accessory, but they are also essential for safer driving in dazzling conditions. Motorists who drive directly into the sunlight may experience temporary blindness, risking their own safety and the safety of others.
Sun glare exposure is especially hazardous in the early morning or late afternoon when the sun is on the horizon. Wearing protective eyewear helps reduce glare and potentially avoid a collision.
Sunglasses should feature polarized lenses to reduce glare and lenses with UV protection to protect your eyes from the sun's damaging rays.
