Transportation Experts Give Safety Tips On Driving During Eclipse

Posted: Updated:

(LEX 18) For less than three minutes on August 21st, daylight will turn to darkness and those on the roads need to be extra careful. 

Experts say that the best way to do that is to plan ahead and get to your destination early. The good thing about Lexington roads are the automatic luminaries that will keep the roads lit when it gets dark. 

Officials say that it is still a good idea to use your headlights while driving during the eclipse.

Safety leaders said that the best way to stay safe on the road during the eclipse is to just stay off the roads. 

And while the special eclipse glasses are needed to safely watch the eclipse, you cannot see anything in front of you when these are on, so transportation experts are warning people to not wear their eclipse glasses while driving.
