Driving in extremely sunny conditions can be uncomfortable and even dangerous if it impairs your vision or causes you to become overheated. Here are some tips to help you cope with the scorching sun while driving:
Use a sunshade: A sunshade is a reflective panel that you can place on your windshield to reduce the amount of sunlight that enters your car. This can help keep the interior of your car cooler and reduce glare.
Wear sunglasses: A good pair of polarized sunglasses can help reduce glare and improve your vision on bright, sunny days. Make sure your sunglasses are polarized and have a UV coating to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays.
Use your air conditioning: Running your air conditioning can help keep the interior of your car cool and comfortable on hot, sunny days. If your car doesn’t have air conditioning, consider getting a portable fan or rolling down the windows to create airflow.
Plan your route: If possible, plan your driving route to avoid areas with intense sun exposure, such as open highways or roads with little shade.
Stay hydrated: Make sure to bring plenty of water with you on long drives, and drink regularly to stay hydrated. Dehydration can make you feel tired and sluggish, which can be dangerous while driving.
Remember, safety should always be your top priority while driving. If you find that the sun is causing you to become too uncomfortable or impaired while driving, it’s best to pull over and take a break until conditions improve.
