    What danger does sunny weather pose to drivers?


    Sunny weather can be more hazardous to motorists than you might expect. Take a look at some of our tips below to help you navigate the roads during sunny weather, and avoid suffering a road traffic accident.

    What can I do to minimise the risks of sunny weather?

    • Be Prepared
      Always carry a pair of sunglasses with you, whether in your car or handbag. Additionally, utilise the sun visor in your car when you notice that sunlight is obscuring your vision. This will help to reduce your chances of suffering an unwanted road accident.
    • Be Aware
      Be aware of extra vehicles on the road, including cyclists, horses and motorcycles. These can spring up on you unexpectedly, particularly on country lanes, so keep an eye on your wing and side mirrors at all times. This will help to reduce your likelihood of having an incident on the road.
    • Look out for pedestrians
      Good weather means many people, including young children, will be walking or playing outside. In order to avoid suffering a serious car crash always stick to 30 mph speed limits, and stay alert when behind the wheel.

    What should I do if I have suffered a personal injury on the road?

    Unfortunately British weather is unpredictable, and it will not always be possible to predict when sunlight may adversely affect conditions on the road. If you are worried about sunlight while driving, drive slowly and carefully, and pull over if you need to take a break.
