Driving is not that hard of a task but it can be made quite difficult – and dangerous – by various factors. Low light or driving at night is one of those things that can make driving a little bit more difficult than usual. Not only do some people have problems with low light but having the oncoming traffic flash their high beams on you aggravates the situation even more.
So how is your night vision? Do you think it can use some helping? Well here are some tips that could help you improve it.
Turn off your dome lights or other strong sources of light.
You might think that that does not make sense. However, if you already have low ambient light and you have other strong light sources, you might find it even harder to see the road. That is why you should not focus on bright light sources that will not aid you in seeing the road ahead. Same thing goes with looking at the lights of oncoming cars.
Take your time.
That is, let your eyes adjust to the night light. If you are in no particular hurry, don’t go rushing into the road. Instead, wait for it to become dark and let your eyes get used to the dark before driving off.
Keep one eye used to the dark.
That sounds funny, eh? What I mean is that if you go to a well lit place while on the road, try to keep your night vision for the other eye. You can do so by closing one eye while in the well lit place. You might look freaky but hey, it can help you a lot when you go back to the road.
