Some motorists are unnerved by night-driving, as statistics reveal that fatal car crashes are actually four times more likely to occur at night than during the day. Some of the reasons for this are obvious, like having reduced visibility, but it’s also because people are more likely to drink and drive in the later hours.
Using the correct lights (without dazzling oncoming traffic) not only helps you to see better but makes you more perceptible to other drivers. Also, keeping your windows clean will avoid increased glare and condensation. If you’re over the drink drive limit, get a lift from a friend of family member who is fit to drive or make use of public transport. Don’t put your life or the lives of others at risk by thinking you’ll be OK. By recognising the risks, potential hazards and abiding to the law, we can all play a part in making the roads safe, whatever the time.
Safe driving from Britannia!
