Like honda city that is not that bad for highway.
I have been driving around for last 10 years in my Pilkington sun glasses [polarised]. The vision at night & in rains is much clearer with them than without them but the other motorists view me as a joker driving with sunglasses on at night.
Polarized glass also prevent reflection of dashboard on windscreen as well as in rain. If googled it is easy to understand the principle.
So glad to see there are other jokers like me
Today on the way to office it was raining.. .. so tried on my sunglasses. visibility was ok. but can't comment more as its was't raining heavily...
but i noticed people having a weird smile .. "look at that joker wearing sun glasses on a rainy day" quickly took it off..
with no sun films.. a bit embarrassed :grin:
Sun glassses with half tint will be good in rain / night , meaning top of the glass it will be med/dark tinted and while going down the glass tint becomes less and bottom of glass it will be plain. Advantage : near by objects/road will be clear and while viewing straight it will help.
@thomman there will be a considerable difference when you use a polarised glass . Not sure if ordinary sunglass would be able to do this justice.
Yes you need to use polarized glasses. Ordinary glass will not be of much use.
Light when getting scattered will also get polarized. So when seen through a polarized glass it gets filtered partially.
This is certainly an interesting point. Must try it today. Anyways, here is the full story: snopes.com: Sunglasses in the Rain
