Drive Safe at Night

Things to do to make night driving safer.


| January 21, 2013


Driving at night makes some people nervous, and with good reason. While there are fewer drivers on the road at night than during the day, about half of traffic fatalities happen after dark, according to the U.S. Federal Highway Administration.

Fortunately, there are things you can do to make night driving safer.

Prep Your Car for Night Driving 

Keep it clean. Make sure your windows, headlights, tail lights and signal lights are clean so they’re easier for other drivers to see.



Switch your rearview mirror to the night setting. Flipping the small lever at the bottom of your mirror changes the angle of its reflective surface. You’ll still see the lights from the cars behind you, but they will be less bright in your eyes.

Make sure your headlights are aimed properly. If your headlights are misaligned, it can make it harder for you to see, and it can also disturb other drivers on the road.
