Driving safely at night

Posted on June 12, 2015 11:39 am under Car Accidents

Night driving is relatively more dangerous than driving during the day. Apart from decreased visibility and depth perception, night drivers have to battle against sleepiness and fatigue. Also, roads are almost always free from heavy traffic during the night, making drivers more prone to accidents caused by speeding vehicles.

If you need to travel at night, consider these tips for a safe night drive:

  • Do not drive alone – Driving with a companion can help you battle against drowsiness, especially when you’re on a long drive.
  • Check your lights – Is the high beam functioning? Are signal lights working as they should be?
  • Check other car components – Your brake, accelerator, and clutch should be working properly. Also, check if your tires are worn out, and if they have enough air pressure.

Night driving accidents could result from almost anything – driver drowsiness, defective car components, weather conditions.
