Every night, thousands of people drive in the streets and highways in your community. People who may be out for a social event, maybe at their kid's late night sporting event. Some people are coming home from work, many in the service industry, or perhaps shiftwork in a factory or industrial environment. Some, maybe just made a quick run to the convenience store or pharmacy. Unfortunately, every night, one, or many of these people, simply do not make it home. Some are lucky and make it to a hospital to endure a lifetime of hurt and recovery. Their lives are forever changed due to an accident that took them away.
Every night, people become victims of accidents, usually one of two main factors:
First, vehicle malfunction. Perhaps, brakes, tires, cruise control or other mechanical malfunction of the vehicle they are driving. This can cause them to lose control, or be unable to maneuver the vehicle, causing the accident and injuring themselves, or others in their vehicle or another vehicle.
Second, gross negligence by the part of the driver. Driving at high speeds, driving at high speeds in dangerous conditions such as a rain or snow, erratic driving, street racing, and of course, driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. This second cause of accidents is 100% preventable, however it seems to be the most common, causing injuries or even death to themselves or others in an auto accident.
So when you are out driving, especially at night, be careful. Be more careful than normal, as low lighting can cause you to misjudge speed of others, have more blind spots, or even see another vehicle that is driving without their lights on.
