Resolve for a Safer New Year
Increasing driver comfort while reducing accidents. That is the name of the game.
The New Year is here, the holidays are over, and it’s time to get back to the grind. A word of caution: with the increased rain, lower sun angle, and early sunsets comes more risk to everyone on the road- drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians alike. Why? Rain makes it more slippery and harder to see, especially when people are wearing dark clothing; the lower sun angle throughout the day means we experience more direct glare; and early sunsets means that the sun will be shining right in our faces as we drive home from work everyday.
Now add the factors of slippery roads and blinding sun glare, and you have a recipe for an accident. We can’t force pedestrians and cyclists to wear bright clothing and use lights, and we can’t force the sun overhead where it doesn’t bother us, but Diversity has an answer that can reduce your chances of having an accident. Here’s how we can help.
One of the largest culprits in motor vehicle accidents is sun glare, especially in when the sun is near the horizon in the morning and evening. Sun glare and the few seconds of blinding afterimage severely impacts drivers, even when wearing sunglasses or driving with the visor down.
That being said, the sun is just one source of glare. Studies note that accidents due to glare also occur late at night, especially on wet roads, because of the bright headlights from oncoming traffic.
Glare is a concern everywhere, and there are products on the market to help reduce it. Suggestions include wearing polarized sunglasses, making sure the sun visor is down and keeping your windshield spic and span.
These ideas are helpful, but none of them are permanent or foolproof. At Diversity we specialize in custom, automotive window tinting. Tint is a permanent solution to glare, and will also reduce the overall heat inside your car. Depending on your needs and the local regulations in your region, our tint will reduce the amount of light traveling into your vehicle by up to 95 percent.
When we are talking about the most distracting glare, we are referring to sun flares that are directly in front of the driver. Shading a windshield with tint is not advisable, but adding a sunstrip to the top of your windshield is a very good idea. We can custom cut a sunstrip for your vehicle that will have a factory fit and finish, and it will dramatically reduce glare and distractions. Do you want to know the best part? This is the cheapest add-on we have, and one of the most beneficial as well. Read more about it right here.
