Tricky Visor

What is the problem with car sun visors?
Why do they stop at the point where the sun actually shines?
On a recent three-hour drive, the highway curves kept putting the sun at the visor gaps. It was uncanny.

Drive, curve, SUNLIGHT glaring past the edge of the visor.
Adjust for shade in time for the road to curve again and move the sun to another area not blocked by the visor.

Early morning driving into the East, battling the rising sun with a seriously deficient sun visor is no fun.
Late evening return drive facing West provides another battle with blindness.

I blame the car makers for designing the visors sized just small enough and with gaps at the hinge and clipping point to be partly useless. Getting actual sun protection is tricky.
