Sound familiar?

Not everyone is keen on driving at night, especially motorists who have to squint at the headlights of oncoming traffic.

Unfortunately, sometimes it is unavoidable and if you are working late or attending a function or social event, you might find yourself behind the wheel of a car at night.

If you do, here are some tips to keep in mind:

1 – Keep your windows clean. Dirt can increase the glare from approaching headlights, making it harder for you to see clearly.

2 – Have your eyes tested regularly. A visit to your optometrist can help detect if you have any problems with your night vision.

3 – Avoid driving if you are tired.

4 – Make sure your headlights are on. Not only will this help you see the road, but it makes it easier for other drivers to see you.

5 – Maintain a safe following distance.

6 – Don’t drink and drive.

7 – Don’t talk on your phone or send texts while driving.
