Light Conditions – Texas Defensive Driving Online Course

Light Conditions – Texas Defensive Driving Online Course

 
Ausie Guy LIght Conditions
Driving while facing the morning or afternoon sun is another hindrance to visibility. To reduce the glare from sunrise to sunset lower the sun visor in your car to help reflect some glare. Wear dark sun glasses.
 
Another tough time of the day to be driving, is when the sun is setting, especially if you’re driving west. Before sunset, make it a habit to turn on your headlights. Give the other drivers some lights to let your presence known.
 
Dusk, is that time of day after the sun’s gone down, but when there’s still some light out. During this time of day it makes dangerous shadow contrast which can make judging distances tricky. Sometimes a lack of contrast will make shapes to blend together making them harder to recognize.
 
One of the most difficult times to drive is from sunset to sunrise, also known as nighttime driving. Nighttime driving offers many of the same visibility problems as driving in inclement weather. Now add inclement weather to nighttime driving and you have a real problem.
• Your first defense is to turn on your headlights. Activating your headlights also activates your taillights and license plate lights. Headlights help improve your visibility in poor light conditions and second, they help improve your visibility to others.
• Avoid looking directly into the headlights on oncoming traffic. Instead, use the white line on the right side of the road for tracking. You will still be able to see the oncoming traffic with your peripheral vision – If the line on your right is a yellow line move back quickly. You are in the wrong direction of traffic again.
