    Driving at Night

    Nighttime driving only accounts for 25% of all driving and there is usually significantly less traffic during these hours. However, driving at night is more of a challenge than many people think. It is also more dangerous:

    • Traffic death rates are three times greater at night than during the day
    • 55% of all driving fatalities occur after dark
    • 62% of pedestrian fatalities occur at night

    Despite these figures, many of us are not aware of the unique hazards or special precautions associated with night driving.
