Car Driving At Night
December 1, 2018
Have a relaxed way of thinking and never panic at night. Being fearless and following the traffic rules will keep you halfway. We’ve seen some new drivers panic in some situations causing them to use force break, shaking the gear shift lever to know how many gears they are in or by clicking on vipers or indicators coming in action when panic. Try not to be that, keep calm and do your actions.
Keep the windscreen clean. Remove stains, dried drops, streaks, fingerprints, dust and greasy things to have a clear vision of the road at night dazzling. First lift the vipers out of the mask with your hand and dust off the dust, then pour enough water over the entire windscreen and allow the water to drain. Now use a viper to clean the windscreen, squeezing detergents stored under the bonnet. Doing so will avoid mild scratches on wind glasses and ensure good visibility on the road.
Using an adder as such to clean the windscreen can wipe dirt and mud particles around the blades and can cause permanent scratches on the windscreen.
GLARY NIGHT VISION AT NIGHT WHILE DRIVING AT NIGHT
Additional caution should be exercised when driving, especially by beginners to intermediate qualified drivers at night than during the day. Driving at night seems frightening to many drivers because of the glaring vision of the opposite vehicle, which drives them blind for a few microseconds while passing by. Please note that glaring visions are a major threat when driving at night.
To do this, avoid looking at the light beams of the opposite vehicle and concentrate on the road space necessary for the lively traffic of your car during the exact time of the opposite vehicle’s passage. When driving, if you are not sure of the road, do not use, but be ready to pedal on the brake, especially when driving on the road, where some stains and damage are already handled.
DIPPED-BEAM / MAIN-BEAM LEVER
Use your main-beam and dipped-beam indicators wisely. Use high lights when driving at night only if you can’t see the cars on the opposite side. Drifting from dipped to driving lights for a while can help you find holes in your pot, spikes, broken ridges and damaged roads even at a long distance with shady vision.
Pull the road beam down to a low level so that you can see the nearby road while you pass an opposite vehicle on the same road. This, on the other hand, means that the driver of the opposite vehicle should do the same, so that both drivers can have better visibility in the passing light (some drivers do not obey this and do not have to worry about it). If you drive other vehicles facing each other continuously, try to be in the dipped beam position. This will help the driver driving on the opposite side of the vehicle to see correctly without passing lights.
