Driving without sunglasses could land you in trouble with the law

Warmer weather has returned to the UK this last week, bringing with it some beautiful sunny days. But how many of you always remember to carry sunglasses with you when driving? Bright sunlight can seriously affect your visibility, and should you be unfortunate enough to have an accident as a result of visual impairment caused by glare, you could receive a fine of up to £2500, be charged with careless driving, or have your insurance invalidated. Roadside fines can be issued in lieu of a visit to court, but even a fine of £100 is high price to pay for forgetting your shades!

Be warned though, having too much of a tint can also impair your vision. We recommend reading this helpful guide from The AA.
