Tips for Driving with a Glare

When driving, have you ever been distracted by the glare. You most likely already know that a bright and beaming sun can blind almost any driver. Therefore, we’ve put together tips for driving with a glare. It’s important to practice safe driving techniques — we can help! The next time you find yourself driving when the sun is out and overly annoying, try using the following suggestions:

Use Sunglasses

If you haven’t done so already, consider investing in polarized sunglasses. These specific types of sunglasses can help to reduce the glare.

Use the Sun Visor

If you haven’t done so already, consider investing in polarized sunglasses. These specific types of sunglasses can help to reduce the glare.

Clean the Windshield

How do you expect to properly see out of the windshield if it’s dirty? Therefore, when driving, it’s very important to make sure that your windshield is clean. It will also be necessary to make sure that your windshield is free of any cuts or cracks.

Don’t Follow Too Closely

You should never follow the vehicle in front of you too closely. However, this rule is even more important when the sun is causing a glare. To be extra safe, make sure you leave plenty of room between yourself and the vehicle in front of you. After all, you never know how that car is going to react.

Use the Headlights

To help other drivers with the glare, consider turning on and using your headlights. In doing so, you will increase your visibility to other drivers.

Use Lane Markers

If the glare is particularly bad and causing you not to see, then make sure you use the lane markers for assistance. These markers can help guide you and ensure that you safely reach your destination.

Use Good Judgment

Though our tips for driving with a glare should be helpful, it’s still important to always use your best judgment — don’t drive if you don’t feel completely comfortable. There is never a good reason to put yourself or anyone else at risk.

I loved taking Virtual Driver Ed Instructor. Not only was it simple to use, but it was also easy to understand. I couldn't believe how fast it was and I had no problem receiving my certificate of completion. I strongly suggest using this program.

Virtual Drive was fast, fun, and easy to use. I didn't think driver's education could be so convenient. Being able to start and stop whenever I needed to was a big plus. I would recommend this to anyone trying to complete driver's education!

I found the course to be full of new additional information I needed to be current on my knowledge of new laws and procedures. Additionally I feel it would not be a bad idea for most people to take this course as a brush up from time to time.

My son Adam was the one who took the course. He has some significant learning disabilities and this course was an outstanding option for him. He was able to do it at his own pace which was a tremendous help.
