Vehicles provide people convenience and comfort; hence, many are considering purchasing one. But, while there are much more advantages that cars offer, car buyers and owners must also acknowledge certain dangers they may face while behind the wheel and on the road.
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1.35 million people are involved in road accidents each year. Furthermore, at least 3,700 people every day are killed globally due to crash incidents involving cars, motorcycles, trucks, and the like.
Car owners are being advised to employ safety precautions, practice defensive driving, and avoid driving if they are relatively not feeling well or not in good condition to reduce their chances of getting involved in accidents. This comes as most accidents are caused by distracted driving, intoxicated driving, speeding, and rain or snow.
Moreover, another common cause of accidents is glare, the phenomenon caused by excessive or uncontrolled bright light reflection from the sun or headlights. Glare from such extreme light sources not only causes distraction and discomfort, but it can also impede a driver’s visual performance – causing them to lose focus on the road and increasing their risks of getting involved in an accident.
