It is noted that 90% of all driving decisions are based on visual input, and the better the driver's vision, the quicker his reaction time to driving situations. This is more important in the fall and winter months. Safety measures to prevent driving mishaps include routine eye examinations that can alert the driver early to changes in vision. Good quality sunglasses are important. All windows including the front windshield must be clear of snow and ice during winter. In order to improve one's visibility for other drivers, taillights and other vehicle lights should be in good order, and motorcyclists should wear bright colred clothing.
