Some studies show that the rates of traffic accidents go up around the country in mid September, and the main reason this happens is because of the increasing problem of sun glare on windshields.  The exact location along the eastern horizon where the sun rises each morning varies over the course of the year, and in mid September sunrise happens exactly due east.  Since most roads run on a north-south-east-west grid, that means that a lot of drivers end up having the sun right in their eyes during their morning commute.  On today’s episode of Weather Break, we talking about why the sun is in the eyes of drivers this time of year and some basic safety tips to make your commute safer.
