Car accidents can occur at any time. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, however, found in 2016 that 37% of all deadly accidents, 23% of all injury crashes, and 20% of all property damage only accidents involving large trucks occurred between 6 pm and 6 am. One reason why so many accidents occur at night is that there are often more intoxicated drivers on the road, particularly on weekend nights. Drowsy and fatigued driving also creates another danger on the roads at night. Motorists who fall asleep at the wheel can end up causing life-changing car accidents. One of the best steps that motorists can take to increase their safety while night driving is to keep their vehicle’s windshield and windows clean to reduce glare. Motorists should also reduce the potential for distractions in their vehicle.
