    And if you are caught our by a tunnel suddenly appearing out of nowhere, then you can always just lift the visor. (Something that you can't do if you are wearing sunglasses)

    You can open the visor and just slide them down your nose, then look over them.

    I can't remember the last time a tunnel appeared out of nowhere... normally, there's this great big hole that you're heading for, visible from a distance back

    Although I do recall the first time I encountered an unlit tunnel in a remote bit of N Italy (the sort of road where the 'barrier' is an occasional concrete pyramid) and discovered that the surface wasn't either... it was just unfinished rock and a tad bumpy... holding on with one hand whilst trying to pull the sunglasses down was a bit disconcerting.

    Last week I was up in Suffolk giving a talk to the local IAM group... the sun was low down on the horizon and causing me problems for between 10 and 15 minutes... because of this thread, I made a note. 90 minutes before sunset it was high enough up that it was out of the direct line of sight... and where I was was down on the coast and VERY flat.
