In the Dark!

Can anyone please give me some tips for driving in the dark?  I don't like not being able to see in front of me!

Re: In the Dark!

Most of the time when driving in the dark, with your lights on  Thanx Chedder, you can see the same amount of road as you can in the day time.

you just see less of the things around the road. The bits that tend to worry people are at corners, but you can not see around then in the daylight either!!

The main thing to help is practice this will build confidence, take your time and drive sensibly. safe driving

Re: In the Dark!

Have your lights checked to make sure they are pointing in the right direction.

Try to get an idea of where the road is going by looking for the line of the street lights.

Use full beam where you can IE; country roads (blue light on dash when on) Making sure you don't dazzle other drivers coming towards you or anyone you are following, If you are dazzled by other drivers, Slow down or stop, Look towards the left-hand kerb Rather than into the lights.

Brake lights can dazzle in the dark, Especially in the rain. Remember to use the handbrake when waiting in queues and at junctions !

Keep your speed down

And don't wear sun glasses  :shock:

Re: In the Dark!

Ash Man  you said "" you can see the same amount of road as you can in the day time.""

Are you sure about that ?

Sometimes people who are worried about driving at night and the amount they can see actually have night vision problems.

As others have said make sure  ALL  lights are working and  correctly adjusted and all bulbs working, and all vision glass is clean.

Drive at the speed that allows you stop safely on your own side of the road within the distance that you can see clearly.

Not like some morons who drive at 60 mph whilst only being able to see 50 metres.

If you still have difficulty seeing to your satisfaction then talk to your optician who may recommend an opthalmic specialist.

Hope that helps
