Health Tip: Drive Safely in the Dark

By on July 19, 2010

Driving at night can be more challenging and more dangerous, especially if you have impaired vision.

The U.S. National Safety Council suggests these tips for safe driving at night:

  • Make sure your headlights and taillights, windows and turn signal lights are cleaned regularly.
  • Make sure your headlights are aimed correctly to avoid affecting other drivers.
  • Never drive after drinking, and don’t smoke while you drive.
  • Turn on your headlights when daylight first starts to dwindle.
  • Slow down, and leave more space between you and the cars in front of you.
  • Remember to turn off the high beams when another car approaches.
  • If you’re feeling drowsy, take a break until you feel rested enough to continue.
