3 Ways to Drive Safer at Night
Public roads can unfortunately become much more dangerous after the sun goes down, a reality which is supported by the fact that more than 40 percent of all traffic fatalities happen at night, despite a dramatic decrease in the number of cars on the roadway. Drivers use visual information to direct approximately 90 percent of their decisions, and when the roads get dark, it can severely compromise one’s ability to safely operate a motor vehicle.
When drivers act recklessly or negligently, they pose a threat to the safety of others. If you have been hurt in a collision caused by a driver who failed to adapt his or her driving behaviors to nighttime conditions, a civil lawsuit may be in order.

Simple Safety Measures
Even if you are a safe driver, you cannot control other people’s actions on the roads. There are some ways you can reduce your risk of an accident during the nighttime. Three simple safety measures that you can adopt are:
- Be sure to reduce your speed and also increase your following distance
- Clean your headlights and windshield to increase your visibility
- If you are feeling drowsy, pull your car over and rest
If you have suffered an injury in a car accident that was caused by another party, an insurance claim may not gain sufficient benefits to address all of your needs. A civil lawsuit may offer a better option for your case.
