Riding at night? Learn to fight the glare

Riding a motorcycle at night is much more difficult than riding during the day. One of the most difficult night riding obstacles to overcome on a motorcycle is the glare from oncoming traffic.

Here are some tips to keep you safe while night riding:

  • Reduce your speed. With reduced visibility at night, it is recommended to ride slow.
  • Do not look directly into the lights of the oncoming traffic as it can cause temporary blindness.
  • Take the help of the road marking as a guide to your path.
  • Increase distance from the vehicles ahead of you.
  • Be visible by wearing bright reflective clothing.
  • Use the high beam when there is no traffic.
  • Ensure that your backlight is functional.
