Driving at night

Because night driving presents more hazards than driving in the daylight, here


Because night driving presents more hazards than driving in the daylight, here are some important tips to remember:

Х Slow down and keep more distance between you and other vehicles, as it may be more difficult to see at night, especially in areas where there may not be any street lights.

Х Adjust your mirrors to reduce the glare from other driver's headlights.

Х Keep your headlights clean and properly aimed on vehicles not equipped with the automatic headlight aiming feature. Dirty or improperly aimed headlights will make it much more difficult to see at night.

Х Avoid staring directly at the headlights of oncoming vehicles. You could be temporarily blinded, and it will take several seconds for your eyes to readjust to the darkness.
