Did you know that traffic fatalities are three times more likely to occur at night than during the daytime? This is because as soon as the sun goes down, a driver’s important visual abilities such as peripheral vision and depth perception are seriously compromised. To ensure that you and your family are driving safely at night, remember to reduce speed and following distance at night. This will give you more time to react in the event that you need to apply the brakes. Also make sure that your windows are clean, as dirty windows can substantially reduce your ability to see at night. To reduce glare, lower the brightness of the lights inside your vehicle’s cabin.
