5 Tips for Driving at Night
It should come as no surprise that driving at night is much riskier than traveling during the day. In the darkness, our vision diminishes and even familiar routes sometimes look alien. Traveling long distances at night—when one is more apt to feel tired—presents an added danger. Indeed, the National Safety Council reports that traffic-related deaths occur three times as often at night than during the day.
Car accidents have the potential to cause not only pain and suffering, but also profound financial loss. If you have been hurt in a wreck and believe you are entitled to financial compensation, contact a capable Wisconsin auto accident attorney of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C.

Safe Nighttime Driving
Fortunately, there are several steps you can take to make driving at night safer. Below are five tips to decrease your chances of experiencing a mishap behind the wheel:
- Before leaving for a nighttime trip, make sure that your vehicle’s headlights, tail lights, and signal lights are clean, in working order, and properly aimed.
- Keep a greater distance between you and the driver in front of you than during the day.
- Reduce your speed.
- Set your headlights to low beam so as not to blind other drivers.
- Avoid looking at oncoming headlights.
Frustratingly, however, not everyone follows these steps to drive safely at night, which can lead to devastating accidents.
