1. HeadlightsWithout these, there won’t be any night driving (except for some special ones who drive). Headlights have two modes which are high-beam and low-beam. These both serve a different purpose, as the low beam is for shorter lengths and high beam is for longer and broader view. While driving if there are vehicles in front of us we should use the low beam as the high beam will hit their rear view mirrors of that vehicle which will reflect into their eyes and cause problems for them.

2. Rear-view MirrorsDuring night time these won’t be as much as useful as they are during daytime due to the use of headlights. Also if the vehicle behind is using high beam, then it will be reflecting and hitting our eyes.

3. No HornsDuring the night driving our horns are replaced by headlights and they are more interactive than the horns. But most people don’t know this and still honk and scare the rest of them.

4. Minimum Safe DistanceThis applies for both night and day driving and is issued by the RTO (Regional Transport Office) that we have to follow. Following the Two-second rule is very important to maintain safe following distance which gives you time to react to the emergency situation which may come at any time without any notice.

These small things matter during night driving, especially for the smaller vehicles. Taking such steps can help you and the others to create safer roads and not to mention that Never Drink And Drive. We all need to reach home safely to our loved ones who are waiting for us. Drive safe!
