Tips on driving in half light

Most drivers prefer driving in the day in good light in optimum road conditions, because these are the best conditions in which to see exactly what is going on in the road.

However there are some drivers that prefer to drive at night, and there are a lot of people who work certain patterns who are accustomed to pretty much always driving in the dark, particularly in the Winter months.

But not many people like driving at times that are between light - dusk and dawn. You should use your dipped headlights in these conditions to ensure that you are have good visibility. You don't need to start doing what other road users are doing in terms of the lights - if you think it would be at all useful to put them on, then put them on - don't feel you have to wait until most other road users have put theirs on.

You should also slow down in order to give yourself more time to react in these conditions. Particularly if the light conditions are changing quickly too such as it is getting darker, and make sure that you are able to stop the vehicle within the distance that the headlights illuminate in front of them.

By being extra vigiliant, using lights and ensuring that you are going a little slower then even in conditions such as an unlit road you can help to keep yourself and other drivers safe by adopting sensible driving practices.
