This is an interesting tip for driving in the rain – and may save your life GOOD VISION IN A DOWNPOUR How to achieve good vision while driving during a heavy downpour also useful driving at night. Most motorists would turn on HIGH or FASTEST SPEED of the wipers during heavy downpour – yet the visibility in front of the windshield is bad. In the event you face such a situation, just try your SUN GLASSES (any model will do), and miracle!  All of a sudden your visibility in front of your windshield is perfectly clear, as if there is no rain. Make sure you always have a pair of SUN GLASSES in your car as you are not only helping yourself to drive safely with good vision, but you also might save your friend’s life by giving them his idea. Try it yourself and share it with your friends.   Amazing, you still see the drops on the windshield, but not the sheet of rain falling. You can see where the rain bounces off the road.  It works to eliminate the “blindness” from passing semi’s spraying you too. Or the “kickup” if you are following a semi or car in the rain. They ought to teach this little tip in driver’s training.  It really does work.   Also tip from the Highway Patrol – NEVER DRIVE WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL ON IN THE RAIN OR WHEN PAVEMENT IS WET OR ICY.
