Distracted Driving is Arguably Worse at Night Roswell, GA
Police Car Roswell, GA

When the roads are quiet, it is easy for drivers to feel a false sense of safety. With no other cars around, night driving can be a relaxing experience. However, if a driver becomes too relaxed, it can lead to accidents.

Distracted driving is generally considered one of the most common causes of accidents on Georgia roads. There are multiple reasons that a driver may become distracted – all of which are arguably made worse when it is dark.

Distracted Driving Causes

With today’s technological advancements, distractions are always close at hand. From cell phones to high-tech dashboards, drivers have plenty of options for taking their eyes off the road. Driving when tired is also a common distraction, when concentration and awareness levels are diminished.

When driving at night, the senses are already impacted by the dark. It is harder to spot potential hazards and drivers tend to feel less likely to get involved in an accident. All of these things combine to make distracted driving a more likely cause of collisions.

Drive Carefully at Night

One of the best ways for drivers to combat distractions at night is a change of perception. Instead of considering a night time drive safer, it is important to think about all the additional dangers from limited visibility. Even if you are always a careful driver, remember that the mindset of other drivers may differ.

Most DUI accidents also happen at night, which is, broadly speaking, the result of drivers consuming alcohol or other substances that affect control and awareness. As a conscientious driver, you could suffer serious injuries in a collision with another driver who has had too much to drink and shouldn’t be behind the wheel.

If you have been injured in a car accident in Georgia and believe the other driver was not paying due care and attention, call the offices of Thomas Rowsey for a consultation today.

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
