Any way to make the car more visible in the day time?

apparently the Day running Lights is not significant enough.

Turn on the headlights. I have mine on pretty much all the time these days... it's not much, but it helps.

Most people here have tint on the front window(s) which is the issue
I seen two accidents happen because of that before. both old ladies were alright. the car was tan color and blended into the backround very well.


both were totaled (engine seized ,oil pump damaged and pouring out oil on the car and T boned on the SUV)


Person in the SUV must have not seen them

second was a dark 90s toyota and a SUV front windows tinted


he stopped literally 1 inch away from the SUV Shocked
but ended up hitting it when the guy in the toyota put it in park and rolled enough to hit the SUV. Rolling Eyes











It makes darker colored cars invisible in the day time.


I don;t have any issue in the night.

distracted driving would be a main cause. but i hate those a**holes that will do 50 in the slow lane, then you go by doing 65-70. and for some reason they speed up just to be in your blind spot. or the ones who get pissed when you pass them had a couple flash their lights and keep on the highs. thats when i remembered i had plenty of time and i didnt need to speed AND that deer that jump out in front of me caused me to slam on my brakes Twisted Evil . or the ass holes that are kind of speeding 60ish and i want to do 65 so i pass them and they speed up to block me from getting over in front of them cause a slower car is coming. had a truck do that and when i cut him off he tail gates me and turns on his high beams. but one thing with technology is you can redirect light with power mirrors and a auto dimming mirror
