UV Safety

July is UV Safety Month! Car safety extends beyond seat belts, airbags, and regular maintenance, to your skin. The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which reaches us in the form of UVB and UVA rays, is associated with most skin cancer cases. Glass can only effectively block UVB rays, leaving us exposed to UVA even inside a car. To help prevent some of this exposure to UVA, car windshields have been partially treated to help filter out some of that UVA radiation.
