(HealthDay News) -- Driving at night can be more challenging and more dangerous, especially if you have impaired vision.

The U.S. National Safety Council suggests these tips for safe driving at night:

  • Make sure your headlights and taillights, windows and turn signal lights are cleaned regularly.
  • Make sure your headlights are aimed correctly to avoid affecting other drivers.
  • Never drive after drinking, and don't smoke while you drive.
  • Turn on your headlights when daylight first starts to dwindle.
  • Slow down, and leave more space between you and the cars in front of you.
  • Remember to turn off the high beams when another car approaches.
  • If you're feeling drowsy, take a break until you feel rested enough to continue.
