    Car Sun Shield

    The problem is real and serious. The solution is so dead simple that I was a bit embarrassed to post it.

    Driving into the sun when it is low in the sky can make it hard for me to see. Adding a movable secondary sun shield can help a lot.

    How about making or buying something like this...

    Marv,

    Thanks - gets me thinking about tolerating the sun when it is lower on the horizon. Doesn't look that hard to make. Buy BUYING one? I think you know me better than that ;-))

    Admittedly, it was a silly thing to say. Of course, if you don't have a large enough piece of polarized, colored plastic on hand, it may be cheaper to buy a commercial model than to buy the plastic.

    Off topic: Those yellow plastic clip-ons really help me with night driving. Modern LED headlights are overly bright and often incorrectly adjusted so they can verge on blinding.

    Make sure you read your state codes. In calif you cannot look through a sun shade device.

    In California everything is illegal. (And a lot of the stuff that is legal is just plain silly.)
