Why do people drive at night? Of course, there are many reasons why someone might have to, when it is unavoidable, but at Accident Advice Helpline, we would always advise against it. Just ask any accident solicitor about the cases they’ve dealt with because of accidents on roads at night. We are here for you if you need the real compensation facts in Wolverhampton.
40% of collisions happen on the road when it’s dark, and your risk of falling asleep at the wheel is high.
During the day, you will be able to see much better – and you probably won’t be driving at the time when you would normally be sleeping.
If you really must…
You may have considered other options, such as getting a train, or setting off in the morning instead, and decided that you would still prefer to drive at night.
You might need to attend an early meeting, so you set off in the late evening to arrive at your hotel the night before. You might be going on holiday and you want to travel when there’s less traffic on the roads. Or you might be moving house, and you can’t take time off work.
If that’s the case, please make sure that you…
Plan your journey. Look at the map before you go, to make sure you have some idea of where you’re heading.
Avoid driving when you’d normally be in bed. If you go to bed at midnight, try to plan your trip so you arrive before midnight. You don’t want to be yawning at the wheel – or, worse, experiencing microsleep.
Get some rest. To avoid falling asleep at the wheel, take breaks at least every two hours. Get out of the car at a service station, have a drink of water, stretch your legs, and only get back on the road when you feel ready. Have a nap if you need one.
Share the driving. Are you going with people who can drive? Are they insured on your car? Let them take some of the strain.
