    What to do if you have a car accident in the dark


    Have you had a car accident in the dark? A large number of car accidents occur in the dark because of reduced visibility. Nighttime driving can be difficult, and it can take years for motorists to feel comfortable behind the wheel under the cover of darkness. Before you head out in your car at night, you should check all of your lights to see if they are operating properly, and you should carry spare bulbs with you as you have no way of knowing when they might stop working.

    Reducing the chances of having a car accident in the dark

    To avoid having a car accident in the dark, you should dip your headlights when traffic is coming your way. When you are on a unlit road and there is no traffic oncoming, use your full beams so you can see more of the road ahead. Avoid looking into the headlights of oncoming vehicles as this could dazzle you and make it harder to see. You should reduce your speed when driving on unlit roads so you can prepare for anything that might be waiting ahead. Always make sure your windscreen and mirrors are clean and check the traffic news to see if there are any closures you don’t already know about on your route.
