Make sure your windshield is in good repair and clean if you're heading out to celebrate tonight.
It's the last day of the year. And you know what that means - New Year's Eve celebrations - parties, concerts and other activities are spread across Modesto and the Central Valley. If you plan to go to one, or party hop and go to several, that means you're going to be out and about driving places after dark. That can be touchy: As Popular Mechanics reminds us, driving after dark can be dangerous.
"Your depth perception, ability to distinguish color, and peripheral vision are all worse in low-light conditions. You tend to be more tired at night," Popular Mechanics says.
It adds, "And consider a basic fact: Typical low beams illuminate the road from 160 to 250 feet in front of your car, and normal high beams shine from about 350 to 500 feet. At 60 mph it takes more than 200 feet to stop. So even with your high beams on, there's not a lot of room for error."
Compound that with the drinking that goes on at New Year's Eve parties (alcohol makes it harder to see), and you can really have some problems. But Popular Mechanics offers 10 suggestions for making night driving safer. Among them: Dim the instrument panel lights; wear the right glasses (no sunglasses); don't stare at oncoming lights; and make sure your windshield is clean and free of streaks.
