a camera provided in the main body portion having a field of view through the viewing window;

a glare reduction portion adjacent the camera, the glare reduction portion having a textured surface for attenuating light reflection off of the glare reduction portion and into the camera.

2. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 1 , wherein the textured surface comprises at least one of a plurality of concave dimples and a plurality of convex protrusions.

3. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 1 , wherein the textured surface comprises a plurality of concave dimples and a plurality of convex protrusions.

4. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 3, wherein the plurality of concave dimples includes at least two concave dimples having at least one of different shapes and different dimensions.

5. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 3, wherein the plurality of concave dimples includes at least two concave dimples having different shapes and different dimensions.

6. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 2, wherein at least one of the plurality of concave dimples and the plurality of convex protrusions is shaped as one of a circle, oval, ellipse, parallelogram, square, rectangle, triangle, rhombus, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon, nonagon, and decagon.

7. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 1 comprising a mounting bracket for attaching the housing to a vehicle windshield, the textured surface being provided on the mounting bracket.

8. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 7, wherein the mounting bracket includes spaced apart first and second sidewall panels and a bottom wall panel that interconnects and extends between the sidewall panels, the sidewall panels and the bottom wall panel being received by the camera viewing window, the textured surface being provided on at least one of the first sidewall panel, the second sidewall panel, and the bottom wall panel.

9. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 1 , wherein the textured surface is provided on the housing.

10. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 9, wherein the housing includes a mounting face, the viewing window being defined by spaced apart first and second sidewalls that extend away from the mounting face and a bottom wall that interconnects and extends between the sidewalls, wherein the textured surface is provided on at least one of the first sidewall, the second sidewall, and the bottom wall.

1 1 . The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 1 comprising a mounting bracket for attaching the housing to a vehicle windshield and a shield received in the housing, the textured surface being provided on the shield.

12. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 1 1 , wherein the shield has spaced apart first and second sidewall panels and a bottom wall panel that interconnects and extends between the sidewalls, wherein the textured surface is provided on at least one of the first sidewall panel, the second sidewall panel, and the bottom wall panel.

13. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 7, wherein the mounting bracket includes a vent configured to facilitate airflow to the camera.

14. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 7, wherein the mounting bracket includes resilient arms that engage ribs on the housing to connect the housing to the mounting bracket.

15. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 3, wherein a depth of the plurality of concave dimples is equal to a height of the plurality of convex protrusions.

16. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 3, wherein a height of one of the plurality of convex protrusions is greater than a height of one other of the plurality of convex protrusions.

17. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 3, wherein the plurality of concave dimples and the plurality of convex protrusions have an alternating arrangement in a first direction.

18. The vehicle driver assist system according to claim 17, wherein the plurality of concave dimples and the plurality of convex protrusions have an alternating arrangement in a second direction that is substantially perpendicular to the first direction.
