As we approach the official first day of Fall, the days shorter and the sun sits lower in the sky during evening rush hour.  Glare from the sun can cause reflections off car windows, hoods and even buildings, decreasing your visibility and making your commute even more miserable than usual.

Why do you think race cars have windshield banners?  They’re not just for advertising our beloved sponsors.  They serve as a sun visor, reducing glare for the drivers.

Since your car probably doesn’t have a racey sponsor banner, keep a good pair of polarized sunglasses in your purse or car to counter late afternoon glare.  They will help you to see better and to drive safely while also looking uber swank sitting in traffic.
