SAFE NIGHTTIME DRIVING PRACTICES
Nighttime Driving Dangers
Accidents can happen at any time of the day, however, accidents that happen at night have triple the chances of being fatal crashes. Driving at night presents its own set of challenges that should be taken into consideration before heading out on the road.
One of the biggest factors that plays into nighttime accidents is the reduced visibility on the roadways. If roads are not properly lit, they can be extremely dark, and even with headlights, it can become difficult to see obstacles or other cars on the road with enough time to react in order to prevent an accident.
Another factor that play into nighttime driving is the increased chances that drivers may be intoxicated or otherwise impaired. It is typically during the dark hours of the night when people head home from the bars and clubs, after a night of partying, and if a sober driver is not present, these circumstances can lead to an accident related to drunk or impaired driving.
Safe Night Driving
Though you cannot control every factor that contributes to nighttime accidents, there are a few things you can do to lower your chances of being involved in one.
Aim Your Headlights
Often in brand new cars, headlights can be uneven, or pointed slightly off from where you would like them to shine. You can adjust this yourself (with a few tries sometimes), or you can take your car somewhere to have a professional help.
Dim Your Inside Lights
By dimming your dashboard lights, you can reduce distractions and also limit the glare onto the inside of your windows and windshield.
Clean Your Windshield
Be sure that your windshield is free from any obstructions, and try giving it a wipe down with a newspaper to cut through any residue and reduce glare from oncoming headlights.
Add Extra Lighting
Consider adding extra lighting to your car, such as fog lights or auxiliary lights, with caution. Do not go overboard with these, as they may contribute to accidents instead of reducing them, if they shine too brightly in the eyes of oncoming drivers.
Though you may not be able to control everything on the roads, you can take these precautions to help prevent nighttime driving accidents. Should you be involved in an accident at the fault of another driver, contact Eric Blank Injury Attorneys today.
