The sun can become quite fierce in the summer months and even as winter is approaching or even in the thick of it, the sun streaming directly through a window when driving can not only be annoying but also very dangerous. If you are the driver of the vehicle you may be able to cope with this by wearing sunglasses and pulling down your visor. Some people also chose to have a sun strip fitted to the window screen of their car to add an extra layer of UV protection. But what about passengers and especially children / babies that may not be able to wear sunglasses?
Children’s eyes are very delicate and need to be protected from sunlight. If they are very young they may not be able to tell you if the sun is in their eyes so it is important to make sure that you ensure it doesn’t happen. Sun blinds are fantastic. There is a number of different ones available and costs can vary from a few pounds up to £40- £50.
One issue with sun blinds is that they often, over time, seem to lose their suction and come off. You may be tempted to buy the cheapest ones but this can often be false economy as they won’t last. Roller blinds are great as they can be retracted at the push of a button but are easily pulled down in to place.
