I defenitly love to drive at night with comfortable music. With such a combination, i can drive any number of kilimeters. but during day time , the traffic is hectic and therez noise everywhere and it is dificult to kill time. So the time to reach the destination is considerably reduced. But if driving to an unknown location, it is dificult to find the correct path (if you don't know the right way) it makes the journey dificult at night.

Hi Heartbeat, I enjoy driving at night, when it's cooler and the traffic much lighter. But I suffer from poor night vision, so I don't do much night driving nowadays.

It depends on where and why I am driving. If I am holidaying and want to see where I'm going and the sites I like to drive during the daylight, but if I have a set destination in mind, I like to drive at night when the traffic is lighter, there are fewer nitwits on the road and the only thing I have to watch out for generally is the wildlife. Driving at night before shoppers have all gone home though is a pain as most people do not realize that they have a dimmer switch to dim their driving lights so that they do not blind oncoming traffic. When I learned to drive, I took a driver's training course and the instructor taught us to watch the hydro lines along the highway for the oncoming traffic's lights. You can see them dim their lights and if they do not, you can be prepared to look away from the middle of the road when their lights first hit you and thus save your eyes. It is harder in the city where some bozos don't even turn their lights on and you can't see them. I find it really hard to see signal lights on dark bright red vehicles when the sun is shining on them. There aught to be a law about red cars.

night vision is really important and it the type of terrain also matter. it safe and easy to drive in high range during day because the vision can be reduced due to fog. and so is the case when raining.

I live in the country (USA UPSTATE New York), almost no street lites; don't think other drivers know about low-beam. So it's day driving that I prefer.

I don't like driving at night just because I get sleepy. And I feel like I can't really see what's going on around me. So I despise driving at night. Of course, I have to sometimes. That's just how it is. But if I can avoid it, I will! I do prefer driving in the morning. When the bf and I go on vacation (long drives, typically) - I drive during the day and he drives on night time. It works well for both of us because I'm a morning person and he's a night person. Hehehehe.

i guess you are pretty buzy during day and you might have enugh work during day time...... that might be the reason why you feel sleepy while you are driving at night. But driving early morning is amazing. pretty normal like night driving. But later on it is hectice to drive during the office hours....

I only prefer to drive in the night only if I know the road well. I mean the road is familiar to me. If I'm not familiar with them, I prefer to drive in daytime. this is to prevent me from getting lost. But I have to say, I love driving in the night as i get floor down the throttle. Live to ride fast.ciaoo.

I am a night driver. I drive taxi and can't stand the day shift. Too many cars with too many drivers that can't drive in the daytime. That added to the heat makes cranky drivers. I like late night driving where red lights are only a suggestion to stop.

I love night drive provided I got enough rest during the day... and at night with the breeze and cool weather, it will be nice to drive especially for a long distance. During the day, I normally only drive from home to work and back... just don't like the traffic and hot hot weather!

ya hot wheather just takes away the pleasure away even if you have got a built in powerfull cooling system. the rush and the buzy atmosphere is nt at all good for driving expecially for long distances. but acceptabe for short distances becoz we have to.

well it depends, if i am driving in the city then it doesn't matter if i am driving at night or day but if i am driving on a highway then i would prefer driving at daytime simple because at daytime the view is much more clear than night and you can take your car to high speeds.

I'll drive at any time of the day. Although, I do prefer to drive during the day time. It just seems to be much easier to do so. The darkness can make it difficult to see things that you're looking for.
