There are plenty of factors that can complicate driving during the day. These factors become even more burdensome after the sun goes down. Driving at night can create its own set of distinct problems. However, by following these tips for driving at night, you can drive well, even in the dark!
Clean and Adjust Exterior Mirrors
Seeing what’s behind you is just as important as seeing what’s ahead of you. This is especially true at night. One of the best ways to make sure you can see everything surrounding your vehicle is to clean and adjust our vehicle’s exterior mirrors for nighttime driving.
Dim Your Interior Lights
As the sun goes down, usually the lights on your dashboard shine bright. However, you would be wise to dim these lights down at night. That way, you can focus more on what’s ahead on the road.
Don’t Look Directly at Passing Vehicle Lights
With that said, don’t look directly into the headlights of oncoming vehicles! These bright lights can damage your eyes, which you will need in top shape if you are going to drive after dark.
