Dusky Dangers: Why Dusk Remains A Dangerous Time To Drive Your Auto

There’s Nothing Like A Georgia Sunset

At The Sanford Group Insurance Agency in Ball Ground, GA we can appreciate the awesome sunsets we enjoy in our beautiful state. If you are fortunate enough to view them on a regular basis it is probably a good idea to park at a good vantage point and enjoy them without any distractions.

The most dangerous distraction to your sunset watching is your driving. Driving at this time is dangerous because your view is changed as the light from the sun is refracted (changes direction) as it passes through the Earth’s atmosphere. Even when the sun has set you can still see the light from it.

In layman’s terms, during these few moments of the day, things start to look really freaky and weird. Our eyes are constantly adjusting to the constant changes in what we are seeing before us. The darkening road is at a great contrast to the ever-darkening sky which is still light. To add more to the mix, some drivers put on their headlights or they automatically come on at this time. The interplay of changing natural light and the artificial light from the headlights cast shadows on objects (other cars, signs, etc) and figures (pedestrians).

Utilizing Extreme Caution Is Key!
