The perils of driving at night
Sadly, night-time collisions aren’t uncommon – any accident lawyer in East Riding of Yorkshire will deal with several cases of personal injury every year where the accident leading to the injury took place on the road at night.
Poor visibility because of the dark, lack of street lighting in some areas (even some stretches of A-road and motorway) and tiredness are all factors that contribute to accidents at night.
It’s also colder at night, so if you’re in an accident and you have to leave your car, it will be deeply unpleasant for you as you stand well back from the road, awaiting the police – and possibly the ambulance.
How to avoid accidents
Don’t drive at night at all, if you don’t have to – stay at home and drive the following morning when you will be rested and the visibility will be better.
If a night-time journey is the only option, can you make it by train instead? If not, are you taking other people with you? Can they drive? If they’re licensed, and insured for your vehicle, let them get behind the vehicle for a bit.
Get some rest before you set off, and continue to get rest on your journey by pulling in at a service station every so often, and at least once every two hours. Use the toilet, stretch your legs, have some water or coffee, and eat a healthy snack.
Don’t put your life, or others’ lives, in danger when you drive at night – and if you need an accident lawyer in East Riding of Yorkshire, call Accident Advice Helpline.
