(KTVI) – During the winter months, the sun can be blinding during the morning and evening rush. Drivers who struggle to see past the bright light may be at risk for a fender bender.

The Original HDVision Visor attaches to a car’s sun visor. The “As Seen on TV” product claims to reduce glare of sunlight and headlights while also enhancing color and clarity.

FOX 2/News 11 Maintenance Engineer Dave Hitz tested the product in the daylight. The transparent, brownish tinted visor flips down diffusing the sun’s light.

“It kind of eases your eyes up a bit,” said Hitz. “You’re not squinting as much.”

Engineer Amin Hinds took the HDVision Visor for a test drive after sundown. He immediately noticed the visor was too high to really diffuse the headlights which were lower than the visor extended. Even after adjusting his seat so he was sitting higher in the car, he was not impressed.

So is HDVision Visor a deal?

“It did work,” said Hitz. “It cut down the glare when we were driving south kind of into the sun and it helped.”

But Hinds feels differently.

“It didn’t make me say ‘Oh, I have to go and get this. I have to go and spend my money.'”

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
