For motorists, squinting into the sun it is more than annoying and uncomfortable. It is also a potential car accident risk, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic. Glare from the sun can blind us to pedestrians, bicycles, traffic signals, even other vehicles. Imagine a car or child on a bike suddenly appears out of the glare and it is too late to get out of the way.
AAA Mid-Atlantic and the National Weather Service offer tips on driving with the sun in your eyes:
No matter how carefully you drive, you cannot predict if the person in the lane next to you or coming in the opposite direction is doing the same thing. A car accident can have lifelong consequences, and crashes caused by negligence should never happen, but they do. If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident call Raphaelson & Levine 212-268-3222 to fight for compensation you deserve.
