Few perils are associated with living in the Sunshine State, but having so much shine all of the time causes sun glare.
If you’ve ever tried to drive with the bright sun shining in your face, you know just how difficult it can be. It’s probably no surprise that this glare causes many accidents each year. The way you treat your windshield greatly affects how much glare you experience, and when you know how to take care of it properly, you increase your chances of staying out of a Daytona car crash.
Keep it Clean
Your windshield takes a lot of abuse from the sun. If it is dirty, sun glare is much worse than it could be. Therefore, keep both the inside and outside of your windshield clean. Dirt and other material makes seeing out of your windshield already difficult, and when you factor in sun glare, it’s almost impossible.
Use Good Wipers
Most drivers never think about their windshield wipers unless they are in poor condition. Worn wipers fail to properly remove moisture and other debris from the windshield, and can leave behind streaks, which become even more prominent with sun glare. Check your wipers frequently to ensure they are in good working condition.
Check Wiper Fluid Reservoir
You’re driving down 95 or 17 and a bug or something else unpleasant hits your windshield, and you need to remove it in a hurry. You attempt to use your windshield fluid and wipers to take it off, but nothing comes out when you press the button. To make things worse, you’re experiencing sun glare, and the debris on the windshield makes it just about impossible to see what is ahead of you. Avoid this frightening scenario by checking your reservoir frequently to ensure it always has fluid inside.
