Approximately 40,000 motorists are killed in car collision annually in this country, and nearly half of those resulting in death happened at night. This is even the case, where there is significantly less traffic at night.
While weather, poor road conditions, and other factors can make driving unsafe at times, driving in the evening an activity many motorist engage in often. However, even the most well-traveled roads can look different in the dark, which makes it difficult to see other motorist, pedestrians, and animals.
