I mean seriously do people forget how to drive now that it is dark earlier?
I can get that it might be bit harder to see but really. The rush hour seems worse now.

I've noticed no difference in the morning rush. The afternoon rush is affected by the low sun. Even with sunglasses and the sun visor down, it's really tough to see on some stretches.

More people having to go into the office as it is not summer. Fall also = more buses on the roads.

Are you new here, this is an annual occurrence that atleast dates back to when I first got my drivers license.

The sun was an issue for awhile but not anymore since daylight savings. I agree though, my evening commute has seemed worse than usual on the beltway. I swear in past years the fall wasn't this bad. Maybe it was, but an 'absence makes the heart grow fonder' type of thing is going on with my memory of my crappy commute.

On a sunny day, the sun is an issue in the morning and the afternoon. It just depends what time you are actually commuting to see if it is an issue for you. It is certainly an issue for someone......

What was the point of that?? Very useful to the thread(sarcasm)

The OP mentioned rush hour. The sun is no longer much of an issue during rush hour

Depends on what you define as rush hour. I have issues with the sun when I leave at 4 some days heading home on Dolley Madison.

Yeah like almost everything its subjective. At 5 when I hit the road the sun has set these days. Wasn't the case before daylight savings though which definitely didn't help rush hour traffic.

No need to get snippy. In DC "rush hour" is plural.....
