Do you know how to stay safe when driving into the sun?

There is no better feeling than taking to the road when the sun is beaming down and there isn't a cloud in the sky.

Unfortunately, this can also have a negative impact on your ability to see the road in front of you.

Sun glare is a serious problem that has caused many motor vehicle accidents over the years.

If you're concerned about staying safe as you drive into the sun, here are some tips to follow at all times:

-- Wear polarized sunglasses. This is one of the best ways to reduce glare, thus making it easier to see the road in front of you.

-- Make use of your sun visor. This can be your best friend when the sun is glaring down, making it difficult to keep your eyes focused on the road.

-- Don't get too close to others. Since you'll need more reaction time in the event of a change in traffic flow, it's important to leave a greater distance between your vehicle and others on the road.

-- Use your headlights. This may sound like a bad idea, but it's actually one of the best things you can do. When your headlights are on, it's easier for other drivers to see your vehicle coming.

You never know when you'll find yourself driving into the sun. This can happen at any time, regardless of the month.

While you're doing whatever you can to remain safe, remember that other drivers may not take as much caution. For this reason, you could still be involved in an accident that requires your immediate attention.
