PRESENCE AND USE OF SUN SCREENING DEVICES IN CARS

AANWEZIGHEID EN GEBRUIK VAN ZONWERING BIJ PERSONENAUTO'S

The glass surface of cars has increased very much in the last few years by the application of the oblique front and rear windows and by the new design of car windows. Sun beams can enter in the car freely. Apparently this is perceived as a nuisance by many vehicle occupants, considering the increasing use of sun screening devices for the rear and side windows. This equipment is cheap and easy to fit. A differentiation can be made between permanent provisions such as foil and outside gratings, and provisions for incidental use such as inside sun blinds and roller blinds. Because they obstruct vision, the presence of sun screening devices on the side and rear windows can adversely affect traffic safety. The effects of the use of these sun screening devices on traffic safety are described. (TRRL)
