In the United States (where land is flat), most roads run directly north/south or east/west. The roads that run east/west will have the Sun rising/setting directly in front of you at certain times of the day. Like me, if you drive to work between 7-8 AM and you drive directly east, you see something like this:
But instead of high in the sky, the Sun sits just directly above the road. It appears in that space between the horizon and the sun guard in your car. Very annoying, especially when I approach a stop light and the Sun is so bright, directly level with the light, making it very difficult to see the light itself! It's like this for a couple of days before and after the first day of fall. After that, the rise position of the Sun has changed enough that the Sun is no longer directly above the road.
Who knows, maybe I'm the only one who has this problem. :-) I love fall because I'm usually tired of the hot, humid weather of summer, but I could do without the bright Sun in my eyes problem. :-)
