Equinox Sun Glare
For approximately two weeks before and after an equinoxthe sun rises nearly due east and sets nearly due west. This creates a potential blinding glare for drivers heading east in the morning and those heading west in the evening.
The Fall Equinox this year is September 22. It is also known as the September Equinox and the Autumnal Equinox.
You can minimize the glare with a clean windshield inside and out. Have polarizing sunglasses handy. And adjust your drive time slightly to avoid the worst of the glare.
