Tips for Nighttime Driving in Albuquerque

February 23, 2020

Driving in Albuquerque can be fraught when danger, especially during the evening hours when visibility is greatly reduced. Like all large and bustling cities, Albuquerque is a popular city for personal injuries. However, you shouldn’t worry if you find yourself the victim of a serious accident. Will Ferguson & Associates can help you pursue a personal injury claim and recover after being injured in an accident. Our experienced attorneys have compiled a list of key tips on staying safe while driving at night in Albuquerque. 

Drive Extra Cautiously

Albuquerque is a busy city, and that doesn’t change when the sun goes down. You should drive even more carefully and with greater caution than you would normally when going out at night. For instance, you could give cars more following room and should avoid taking any risks, such as running a stop sign or a red light. You should avoid making erratic maneuvers while behind the wheel, and be sure to always use your blinkers to signal to other motorists when you plan on making a turn. 

Remain Vigilant & Alert

Tips for Nighttime Driving in AlbuquerqueWhen driving at night, it requires a great deal more vigilance and alertness than typical day-time driving. 

  • First, make sure that you’re awake and sober before getting behind the wheel of your vehicle. Driving fatigued or under the influence of substances can severely impair your judgment and leave you at risk of causing a serious crash. 
  • Next, always keep an eye out for pedestrians and cyclists. Even though they should be wearing bright, reflective clothing, not all pedestrians or cyclists do so. Pedestrians can be particularly hard to see during the night, so always drive at a safe speed and be alert for sudden hazards that appear without warning.

Turn On Your Headlights

Perhaps the most important tip on staying safe while driving at night is to turn on your headlights. When you drive without your headlights, it can be deadly, as you will likely be unable to see others, and others will be less able to see your vehicle, as well. This is essentially a lose-lose situation that isn’t ideal for anyone. Turn on your headlights to stay visible to others and so that you can see more clearly while traveling on the road at night.

You should use your headlights when weather conditions are poor. Whenever visibility drops below a less than ideal level, you should use your headlights in order to see better while out on the road. 

Evening-Hour Crashes in Albuquerque

With nearly 6.1 million reported crashes each year, traffic accidents are entirely too common in the United States. Car accidents can be especially jarring at night. Despite the fact that traffic is reduced by 60 percent on nighttime roads, 40 percent of all deadly crashes happen during the evening. 

A crash victim should always protect their right to compensation. The team of Albuquerque car crash lawyers at Will Ferguson & Associates is here to fight for your case after a collision. Give us a call at (505) 243-5566 to see how we can help.
