Health Tip of the Day

Tips for Night Driving

  • Don't wear sunglasses. At night, tinted glasses reduce the amount of light reaching the eye and therefore reduce vision.

  • Give your eyes time to adjust to darkness. Before driving, sit in your car for a couple of minutes to let your eyes adjust to the low light.

  • Don't look into approaching headlights. Instead, look to the right and far ahead, so your eyes aren't temporarily blinded by the bright lights.

  • If you have trouble seeing at night, have your eyes checked by an eye doctor.

  • Keep your windshield clean, and wash your headlights whenever you clean your windshield.

  • Keep your headlights properly aligned.
