Late Night Driving Accidents By Tod Aronovitz | 08/31/18 | 0 Comment
Reasons Late Night Driving Accidents Are So Common in Miami
Accidents are common late at night because many people are coming from the nightclubs where they’ve been drinking and are driving drunk. People also are coming home from work and are drowsy. Fatigued driving can lead to an accident.
There was a study done in 2010 that showed that 53 percent of drunk driving accidents occurred between the hours of 9 p.m. and 12 a.m. Additionally, alcohol played a role in 71 percent of the accidents that occurred between the hours of 12:00 a.m. and 6 a.m.
Alcohol makes driving more risky in several ways. It can impair judgment. It can also slow down reaction time. Additionally, people are more likely to engage in risky behaviors while they are behind the wheel if they have been drinking.
How to be a Safe Nighttime Driver
You do not have any control over what the other people on the road are doing. However, there are some things that you can do in order to be a safer nighttime driver. You need to maintain a safe driving distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. If someone has to make a sudden stop, then it will be easier for you to avoid hitting them in the back.
You also need to keep your dashboard lights at a low setting. Keep your windows and windshields clean. This will limit the glare. Additionally, you need to limit your distractions. Your vision is not as good at night so you have to stay focused on the road.
