When natural lighting lacks, both the vehicle’s artificial illumination and the external urban illumination facilitate, the maintenance of (the road traffic) the functioning of the system vehicle – road – pedestrian. This paper offers basic information on the visual guidance, which is a quality criterion with an essential role in ensuring a fluent and safe traffic. The manifestations of disability glare are given as examples, particularly in traffic. The paper also reveals a series of data that allow the establishment of the luminance level in the road-conflict area.
