Wind deflectors are installed at the sides of a vehicle along the top edges of the windows, sunroof or on the hood to deflect and reduce the amount of wind, rain drops and dust getting into the interior. This allows for windows to be partially or widely open without resulting to any harm on the driver or passengers in the car. These window visors usually have a black smoke color and dynamic design to complement the exterior look of the majority of cars manufactured today. Deflectors that are installed on the front hood of a vehicle protect it from debris which may be thrown up into its path either by the wind or another vehicle.
