4 Ways to Drive Safely at Night ~ #NightDrivers



I wear my sunglasses at night. 
I remember singing along to the words of this song by Corey Hart, however, the first line has been something that I have always wished I could do. I live in Colorado where it seems that no-one knows how to dim their headlights. Everyone drives with their high beams on. I get it, we don't have a lot of street lights, so it's always dark here. I don't live in the bright city of Denver, but more in the suburbs of Colorado Springs. I always keep a pair of sunglasses in my car, but they weren't optimal for night time driving. Everything was darker and it made driving even more difficult. That's why I was so excited to learn of Night Drivers. They are my solution to night time driving and best of all, I can finally wear sunglasses at night. Today I want to share with you, four ways that you too can drive safely at night.



1. Make sure your windshield and windows are clean
Having a dirty windshield and windows decreases your visibility, especially at night. While you may not be able to see the smudges and streaks as much during the day when the sun is at it's highest, they can become very visible at night, especially from the glare of oncoming traffic, thus making it a bit more impossible to see during the night. Remember to not only clean the outside but the inside as well.

2. Use your high beams wisely
While your high beams can come in handy in very dark areas, where there are little to no traffic, be sure to lower them when faced with oncoming traffic so that you don't blind other drivers. Also turn them down when you're following traffic, so that you're not distracting the driver in-front of you. However, when you are faced with the glare from another drivers high beams, try to avoid looking at them, by instead looking to the right side of your lane. This has saved me on numerous occasions.


3. Drive slowly and increase following distance
Since your visibility is more restricted at night, a good rule of thumb is to drive at a slower speed than you would during the daytime when you can see a lot better. It takes a longer time to see hazards, so it will also take a longer time to react to them. Driving slowly and at an increased following distance gives you a better chance at reacting to any problems that may come your way, thus avoiding them.

4. Wear Night Drivers 
The glare from oncoming traffic can be blinding, wearing Night Drivers can help. While you can look away, Night Drivers' unique yellow lens blocks the glare from their headlights and has passed global traffic light standards. I have been wearing mine for the past week and I have to say that they work amazingly well. Now I have more contrast and less glare when I drive.

  9. I need night drivers. I can't see well at night, which is why you will rarely ever find me driving after dark. With daylight savings time now, it is dark by 4:30pm Eastern and I hate that, because it means longer time at home. I will have to look into night time glasses options!

    ReplyDelete
  10. That is my issue too! The glare from on-coming traffic makes me squint and you just don't know what might happen in a few seconds that your eyes are closed. Thanks for letting me know about Night Drivers. I will get each and every member of my family a pair. Safety first!

  33. It's always a wonder to me when people drive with their high beams on constantly. They seem to forget to turn them off when they see a car. It can make driving hard when you are being blinded. This night glasses sound like the perfect solution.

  34. I like the idea of night drivers. Sometimes the glare is awful just from the street lights. Plus you then CAN sing that great song all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  35. these are all great! I have not heard of Night drivers before so I’ll have to check them out!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I saw your post on Twitter and I have this issue. Checking these out - thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great tips here Ann Marie! I also make sure I lock my doors at night. I should probably do it always but I just feel safer at night to have them locked, especially when at lights!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I never thought of wearing sunglasses at night but it does make sense for the glare. I might have to try this.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Any advice for driving at night is welcome from me. I'm just so scared of driving at night because I have problems seeing.

    ReplyDelete
  40. How brilliant is that. Night driving is actually a problem for me. It's better if I wear my glasses but the glare is awful. I asked my eye doctor about it and he said it was age. This was when I was only 32! I guess it happens fast.
    I really am interested in these. I think they're crucial.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Excellent tips! As I'm getting older I really dislike driving at night. My vision is different and I get really nervous when it's very dark.

    ReplyDelete
  42. This is exactly what my hubby needs! Getting older brings its challenges and poor vision is one of them.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Using your high beams wisely is great advice. When I first started driving, I would turn them on all the time at night and my husband taught me they can be dangerous if used incorrectly.
