One person drove at night. The oncoming vehicle galloped in, and he politely converted the dazzling high beams into low beams. But the other party ignored him and galloped past, and the bright light pierced his eyes, making him unhappy. In the dazzling white light, he ushered in the next far-beamist, and this time he was angry. At the moment when the two sides crossed, the other side's conscience discovered that both sides became low beams. It was a moment when both sides felt comfortable!
Many veteran drivers have said that the accident rate of driving at night is often higher than during the day, because the bad light at night, coupled with the influence of the light, slower reaction of the driver, etc. are the main factors that cause accidents.
What should I pay attention to when driving at night?
Learn to use lights when driving in the dark
When driving at night, car lights are an indispensable auxiliary tool. In use, not only must be careful not to turn on the fog lights and headlights at the same time (if you can't even switch the fog lights, you should read the manual first), but also understand how to use and change the lights.
In night driving, if the vehicle speed is below 30 km/h, the low beam should be used. Under normal conditions, the light can shine beyond 30 meters. When passing an intersection, you should slow down at a distance of 50-100 meters from the intersection, change the high beam to the low beam, and turn on the turn signal to indicate the direction of travel.
Go ashes but not black
Some veteran drivers often say that driving at night "Walk ashes but not black", "While driving ashes and not white, stop when you see the dark". To put it simply, at night without moonlight, the road is generally gray and black, and the road outside is black; there is water. The areas where light will be reflected, and the potholes will be darker. In addition, the terrain can be judged according to the changes of the front light beam. For example, the shorter the beam may be due to a curve or an uphill road, the longer the beam may be a downhill road, and the gap in the beam may be caused by potholes on the road.
Judge road conditions based on lights
Vehicles often encounter intersections at night, and the driving situation of the other vehicle can be predicted based on the illumination of the lights from the side road. If there is scattered light from the high beam of the other car at the intersection, it can be judged that the vehicle is still far away from the intersection.
According to the light irradiated by the lights of the distant car, it can also help us to judge the road conditions ahead. In good weather conditions, if the opponent is direct light from the high beam, and the distance is far and clear, it can be judged that the road ahead is flat. If the high beam light suddenly disappears and no longer appears, it can be judged that there is an intersection or a curve ahead; The high-beam light line swings greatly from left to right, and it can be judged that the road ahead is a winding road; if the high-beam light line floats up and down, it can be judged that the road ahead is a slope.
In short, the most important thing about driving at night is to be slow, and second, to concentrate. Of course, you should try not to rush the night.
