Driving on Dark Nights

As the weather gets colder around us and we find ourselves in the midst of autumn, we also slowly become aware of another danger on the roads at this time of year – The darkness.

Although many may write this off as not a hazard, driving in the darkness is an activity that needs to be approached with extreme caution – It is not enough to simply switch on the dipped headlights and assume you will be fine. You also need to drive slower than you normally would to accommodate for any unforeseen changes in road conditions that would otherwise have been perfectly visible in the middle of the day.

Awareness also needs to be at it’s peak when driving at night – Just because it is later in the day doesn’t mean you should be any less careful about pedestrians and other motorists.

Safe driving from Britannia!
