Cut the glare, cut the risk

Tint World® offers a solution from the sun and rain

Glare from sun and headlights alike cause car crashes. Tint World® can help reduce such accidents. It’s scientific.

“So far as crash avoidance is concerned, when looking at the overall phenomenon and the distribution of crashes over a period of 24 hours in a day, it becomes clear that future efforts concerning glare should include both headlamps and sunlight. What is needed is a common approach to both headlamp and sunlight glare and develop countermeasures to reduce glare before it strikes drivers’ eyes.”

Most everyone has encountered serious sun glare, especially while driving – even with the visors down – in the early morning or late afternoon. All of a sudden your vision is seriously compromised and you find yourself gliding through a red light or stop sign. Depending on your luck at the moment, that can either yield a sigh of relief, a call to your insurance company or even a trip to the hospital – or morgue.

As the authors of the research point out, the sun is but one source of blinding glare. Headlights, especially on a rainy night or wet road, can also temporarily fry retinas. To make matters worse, drivers generally can’t use glare as an excuse to avoid liability following a crash.

Suggestions to avoid glare include polarized sunglasses, sun visors and keeping your windshield clean. But there’s a better – and more obvious – precaution you can take: Get your windows tinted at Tint World®. It is, after all, the foundation on which we built our business.
