    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Lawyer in Roade


    Driving at night can be a challenge, particularly if you are a newly qualified or elderly driver. If you fall into either of these categories, you will be more prone to suffering from accidents on the roads. Fortunately, a few simple precautions will dramatically reduce your risk of becoming involved in an accident.

    How to drive safely at night

    When travelling on the roads at night, you should:

    • Check that your vehicle’s lights are in good order, and that your windscreen is clean
    • Grant your eyes the chance to adjust to the dark before you take to the roads
    • Avoid driving when you are tired
    • Drive at a safe speed, and keep an adequate distance from the vehicle in front of you
    • Ensure that your mirrors are in an anti-glare position
    • Always signal in advance of time before manoeuvring

    Factors that add to the dangers of driving at night

    While the darkness can seriously affect driving conditions, a range of factors add to the dangers of driving at night:

    • Drowsiness
      Drowsiness makes driving more difficult – it dulls your concentration and slows down your reaction times.
    • Alcohol
      Alcohol severely impairs your driving ability, and acts as a depressant, inducing fatigue.
    • Cigarette smoking
      Cigarettes contain nicotine, which can hamper your night vision.
