Sun strike a traf­fic risk

South Waikato News - - MOTORING -

Bri­tain’s In­sti­tute of Ad­vanced Mo­torists says glare from the sun cre­ates more dan­ger for driv­ers than driv­ing at night or in bad weather.

Fig­ures re­leased by the UK Govern­ment re­vealed that glare from the sun was a cause of 2684 in­jury crashes in 2009 – as many as head­lamp daz­zle and bad weather com­bined.
