[dropcap]T[/dropcap]ruck drivers have to deal with hazardous conditions on the road, along with hazardous 4 wheelers. Being able to spot trouble the instant it begins can mean the difference between life and death. Most professional drivers will tell you, cheap truck stop shades seldom cut it when you need to see the road clearly. As they all know, tired eyes are just as much of a safety hazard as low tire pressure, an unresponsive clutch or a leak in your brake line. All of these problems make it harder for truck drivers to react to situations developing ahead of them. Glare from cheap sunglasses are no different.
What do professional grade sunglasses do for your safety?
- They have good quality lenses that aren’t warped
- They have 100% UV ray protection
- They have stiff frames that don’t bend out of shape
- They are scratch resistant
- They reduce glare from the sun and reflective surfaces
