Drive at night
After sunset many of the drivers don’t like to drive at night because of the difficulty to see clear. What are the main issues when driving at night?
Main issue when driving at night are the lights of opposite driving cars. They can cause discomfort on the road, and strain the senses further. Irritating light can blind or distract the driver and he may not react adequate if something happen.
Reflections of the lights in a combination with wet road is even worse. Drivers should be very careful in situation like that because traffic lights and street lamps are also involved.
