Chevrolet Cobalt Owners Manual: Driving at Night

Night driving is more dangerous than day driving because some drivers are likely to be impaired — by alcohol or drugs, with night vision problems, or by fatigue.

Night driving tips include: - Drive defensively.

- Do not drink and drive.

- Reduce headlamp glare by adjusting the inside rearview mirror.

- Slow down and keep more space between you and other vehicles because headlamps can only light up so much road ahead.

- Watch for animals.

- When tired, pull off the road.

- Do not wear sunglasses.

- Avoid staring directly into approaching headlamps.

- Keep the windshield and all glass on your vehicle clean — inside and out.

- Keep your eyes moving, especially during turns or curves.

No one can see as well at night as in the daytime.

But, as we get older, these differences increase.

A 50-year-old driver might need at least twice as much light to see the same thing at night as a 20-year-old.
