While driving during the day is often easier for people to do, there may be times in your life when you have to drive during the night. Although this type of driving can often be preferred for one reason or another, in general, driving at night is more dangerous than driving during the day.

Also, whenever possible, use your high beams. These brighter lights can make it easier for you to see out in front of your car.
