Night driving is a unique skill and one that takes some getting used to for even the most confident daytime drivers. With that in mind, we thought it’d be a good idea to go through some of the most effective techniques and tips for taking to the road once the sun’s gone down.
This isn’t a technique as such, but it’s still important to the safety of you, your passengers and other road users. At night, you’ll need to make sure that nothing hinders your vision. Any kind of windscreen dust or dirt will limit how well you can see and make the darkness outside seem even darker. Annoyingly, i will also make any oncoming headlights seem brighter. Don’t forget to give your windscreen a quick clean before you head out at night.

While the debate rumbles on regarding expiry dates for car seats for young children, there is another question on the lips of many regarding expiry dates for cars themselves. It’s a particularly hot topic over in India at present with the Indian government working on a policy to determine the “end of life” of vehicles sold across the nation.
In the next ten years, the Indian government and the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) anticipate the country’s automotive industry will explode to upwards of $300 million in value terms; generating up to 12 per cent of India’s GDP. It’s this unprecedented surge in demand which will lead to more cars on Indian roads and the need for older vehicles to be scrapped.
