Sun Glare Warning for Toronto Drivers

Warning for Drivers Despite great opportunities for photographers looking for sunset photos, driving conditions for westbound motorists in downtown Toronto may be difficult for about 3 weeks following February 15th due to glare from the sun prior to sunset. The last hour of daylight is typically the worst. Take extra care watching for pedestrians and cyclists as they will be difficult to see in the sun's glare and as they come out of shaded areas. Sunset times between February 15th and March 8th in Toronto range from 5:48 to 6:15 pm.


Drive Safe!!!

Cheers, Ralph
