Special Savings On an Automatically Dimming Rear-view Mirror

You Can’t Avoid What You Can’t See
Driving at night is more dangerous than driving during the day. That’s largely due to the reduced visibility, since you’re relying on street lights and your headlights to show you the road and everything on and beside it, far enough ahead that you’ll be able to react in time when you see things like turns and objects in the road. The darkness is made even worse by the glare from the headlights of other cars. When they shine into your eyes, the irises of your eyes contract, and everything else that you’re trying to see suddenly looks darker. Over the years, car headlights have continued to become brighter and more focused to see even farther ahead. That’s good news for you when the headlights are on your car but bad news for you when the headlights are on a car that’s facing you. After the glare from another car’s headlights leaves, it takes anywhere from 3 to 7 seconds for your vision to readjust to the dark. At 60 miles per hour, that’s anywhere from 260 to over 600 feet that you can barely see where you’re going.
But the headlights you need to worry about the most are the ones of the car behind you. They’re the closest to you, they’re almost perfectly lined up with your eyes, and they stay with you constantly. That’s why all the way back in the 1930s, car manufacturers made rear-view mirrors that tilt to show a view where the brightness is greatly reduced. Of course, by the time you see the headlights in your rear-view mirror, your eyes will need that 3 to 7 seconds to recover. And if you need to pay attention to something happening in front of you when those headlights appear behind you, then they’ll have even more time to compromise your vision, until you can flip up the mirror. That’s why now there are automatically dimming rear-view mirrors. They use a rear-facing photoreceptor and a sheet of electrochromic material to automatically dim the view in the mirror at the moment a bright light shines on it from behind you. That preserves your low-light vision, and allows you to keep a good view of the road ahead.
