Stay Safe: When the Sun Hits You in the Eyeballs
If you had trouble deciphering the Canadian accent (man, I really need to work on that), here are the main points from the video.
How to stay safe when the sun is on the horizon and is blinding you (and the drivers):
- Choose a route that avoids the sun being situated directly behind you.
- Wear polarized sunglasses
If you are in a vehicle, slow down when the sun is in your face and blinding you from seeing the road properly.
If you are a cyclist, don’t assume that a vehicle can see you…if the sun is behind you, all the might see is a glare in their face and totally not see you at all.
Stay safe out there my cycling friends.
