When do windscreen pillars cause a serious obstruction to your view?
Windscreen pillars can obstruct your view, particularly at bends and junctions. Look out for other road users – especially cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians – as they can easily be hidden by this obstruction.
Windscreen pillars or ‘A’ pillars
Windscreen pillars are the vertical supports at the front of your car on either side of the windscreen. It’s important to be aware of the possibility that vehicles, pedestrians and other potential hazards may be hidden from the view of the driver behind them.
