Besides the fact that excessive windshield reflection or glare can be a nuisance, it can also be a safety concern because of reduced driver visibility. Windshield reflections are most commonly caused by reflected light from the dashboard, the a-pillar or from the sunroof. If one or more of these reasons is the case, the remedy is generally as easy as purchasing a dashboard rug, which is a non-reflective surface that covers your dashboard. A scratched windshield can also produce more than desirable amounts of reflection. If this is the case, you may need to replace your windshield or find a professional to buff out the scratch.
