What if say a child on bike was in that area of your windshield.
Would they get "tuned" out with the stitch?

I tune out dirt on the windshield too. But do I never clean it?
Is it safe to continue driving with it dirty?

Your eyes/brain can tune out all kinds of noise. But do you maintain the same sensitivity if the noise wasn't there. Of course not.

How much impact is it really? No idea. But I know it's not zero.

I look at it as an unnecessary safety issue.
If it is a safety issue for you, it can easily be resolved with a dash cover. Lots to select from.

I might just try something like that to see if it feels different.
It's only really noticeable on sunny days.

If I didn't notice the same thing, this thread would have me in stitches.

I just got used to it, but know what you mean.

Re: Share your tricks to deal with Stiching Reflected on Windshield

If you decide to go the Sharpie route, be sure to use a waterproof ink pen (I got one from a garden shop.) I didnít like the big white North Face logo on my black winter jacket. I used magnifying goggles and was very careful. It looks fine and after three winters has never bled or worn off.

If I had not read complaints about it on this forum before I got it, I might never have noticed it.
