    Sun glare is a real hazard. There are spots on I-70 in Denver that point you directly into the setting sun during evening rush hour. Seems like someone always overreacts and hits the brakes, then bing bing bong you have a pileup.

    I have hated certain cars and sometimes trucks for reflecting that sun.

    What I learned to do once long ago was having a tractor long hood with a charcoal top. No glare then. Or keeping a dash with black rims on all the dials. Not chrome.

    What we did back then was tint the windows like 110% night. It was not something enforced back then.

    Clearly this is caused by global warming. And the solution to that is to turn off the sun.
    Kinda like the 3 astronauts from the US, Russia and Italy. The US astronaut says we're going to the Moon, the Russian astronaut says we're going to Mars. The Italian astronaut says we're going to the Sun. The others laugh. How they ask? The Italian says, "we're going at night"
