More Night Driving Tips from HD Night Vision!

The idea of taking a drive at night is common for the average driver, but we can get used to things being slightly off and try to compensate for them. This can be dangerous when driving at night.  Here are some pointers from HD Night Vision for making your night drive safer.

Headlight Alignment

Many people drive with misaligned headlights and don’t even realize it. A properly aimed pair of headlights should light up the road sufficiently enough to see 40 feet in front of your car and covering the width of your lane entirely.

Aiming your headlights is easy. Simply wait until dusk or after, and drive your car to a wall that’s on flat ground. Make sure there is about 30 feet between your car and the wall. Turn on your lights and observe where they shine. Your headlights should be pointing to the same height the lights are on your car. They should also be centered and close to each other, but not overlapping.

It’s very easy to aim headlights as they were meant to be aimed. A quick look at your car’s driver’s manual will show you where the adjustment screws or knobs can be found.

 

HD Night Vision More Driving TipsDim Your Dashboard

Have you ever wondered why that knob that adjusts the brightness of your gauge cluster is there? It’s for dimming during dark hours. When it’s dawn or dusk, it’s not so important, and the higher brightness helps you see the gauges better. When it gets completely dark, however, a bright gauge cluster only acts as interference as your pupils try to adjust to the road, then to your gauges. Your pupils don’t deserve that kind of workout, and they will most likely be more closed than they would be if you didn’t have a bright gauge panel shining directly at you.

 

Your Mirror is a Prism

Have you ever wondered what that switch on your rear-view mirror is for? Your mirror is actually a prism, acting as a strong reflector and a weak one. If the car behind you is blinding you with their headlights, just flick the switch, and the prism will shift, giving you a clear, but less intense rear view. Some newer cars have automatically adjusting rear view mirrors that switch when it detects bright lights!

 

Even with these measures, some of those lights at night can be too bright to bear.  And, of course, while we can control some lights in our automobiles, we can’t control those outside of our cars.  Make sure you take – and use – your HD Night Vision Glasses to help reduce those annoying lights and glaring that occur while driving at night.

With these simple tips – and with your HD Night Vision Wraparounds – your night driving experience will be more pleasant, and moreover, it will be much safer for you, your passengers, and other vehicles on the road.

Here are some tips to keep in mind as you travel during the winter months:

Check Your Cooling System

When coolant freezes, it expands. This expansion can potentially damage your vehicle’s engine block.  Don’t let this happen to your vehicle this winter.  Make sure you have enough coolant in your vehicle and that it’s designed to withstand the winter temperatures.  Also make sure you check the cooling system for leaks.

 

Check Your Battery

When the temperature drops, so does battery power. For gasoline-powered engines, it takes more battery power to start your vehicle in cold weather than in warmer weather. For electric and hybrid vehicles, the driving range is reduced and the battery systems work better after they warm up. Make sure your battery is ready for winter by checking for sufficient voltage, inspecting the charging system and belts, replacing the battery or making system repairs (if necessary), and making sure the battery cable connections are tight and secure.

 

Check Your Windows

Safe winter driving depends on achieving and maintaining the best visibility possible.  Some tips: Make sure there are no large cracks in any of your windows, make sure your windshield wipers work, replace worn wipes blades, use “no-freeze” windshield washer fluid, make sure the reservoir is full, and make sure your window defrosters (front and rear) work properly.   You can also increase your visibility by making sure you keep a pair of HD Night Vision Glasses in all of your vehicles.  HD Night Vision Wraparounds fit over prescription glasses and reduce the glare from wet roads, strong sun on the snow, and on-coming headlights and street lights.

Tackle Black Friday with HD Night Vision

hd-night-vision-black-friday

Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States.  It has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the US since the 1930’s  Most major retailers open very early on Black Friday and many open during overnight hours (or even late on Thanksgiving Day).

When you’re out shopping this year be sure to be safe by following these tips:

Shopping in Stores

  • Don’t flash the cash. Consider alternate options to pay for your merchandise, such as one-time or multi-use disposable credit cards.
  • Wait until asked by a cashier before taking out your credit card or checkbook.
  • Save all receipts. Print and save all confirmations from your online purchases. Start a file folder to keep all receipts together and to help you verify credit card or bank statements as they come in.
  • Do not buy more than you can carry. Plan ahead by taking a friend with you! Shopping is more fun with a friend, anyway.

Walking to and From Your Car

  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Have your keys in hand when approaching your vehicle. Check the back seat and around the car before getting in.
  • Deter pickpockets. Carry your purse close to your body or your wallet inside a coat or front trouser pocket.
  • Do not leave packages visible in your car. Lock them in the trunk, or if possible, take them directly home.
  • Tell a security guard or store employee if you see an unattended bag or package.
  • When driving to and from stores be sure to keep your HD Night Vision Glasses with you. Between all the store lights, holiday lights, and all the car traffic Black Friday brings, there will be tons of glare.

Five Tips for Night Time Driving

hd-night-vision-wraparounds-5-tips-night-time-driving

In general, driving a car always has an element of danger.  The car could break down, a bad driver could be on the road heading towards you, or the weather may be horrific! For many people driving at night is even more of a concern, but there are many things you can do to make the experience of driving in the dark a lot more comfortable and safe. Here are five tips HD Night Vision Glasses asks you to consider:

1) Make sure your headlights are aligned properly. This is a huge safety factor. It can make the road less visible if the vehicle’s headlights are not properly aligned.

2) Leave more space! Leaving extra space between your car and the one in front of you can make a big difference. This may prevent you from slamming on your breaks at the last minute.  And remember, it can be even harder to tell the actual distances between you and the car in front of you when you’re driving at night.

3) Wear the correct eyewear. HD Night Vision Glasses are proven to reduce glare, enhance color, and provide you with greater clarity.  They’re great for night time driving, snowy conditions and rainy conditions.

4) Scan the road rather than keeping your vision on one spot. This will help keep you alert, and you will be able to tell if there are any furry friends moving out from dark places onto the road.

5) Dim everything! Dim your dashboard panel and instrument lights; this will keep your eyes from getting distracted by interior lighting.

HD Night Vision Glasses and Five Tips for a Perfect Date

hd-night-vision-glasses-tips-perfect-date

Summer’s here and for many folks that means more date nights. Winter can be fun for cuddling and staying indoors, but summer means going out and enjoying the beautiful weather as a couple. HD Night Vision glasses are on a mission to make your date night an unforgettable one! Consider these five tips for a perfect date night.

1) Plan, Plan, Plan! Don’t wait till last minute to pick a restaurant.  You want to seem like you’re a person with a plan. Not planning ahead can give the impression that the date isn’t that important to you so make sure you have some plans in place.

2) Conversation is key! While going to the movies is a popular date night activity, it can also be a hindrance – especially on first dates. The whole concept of a first date is getting to know the other person and during the movies, you can’t talk.  Make sure your plans include times for some real conversation and connections.

3) Clean your vehicle. You might be spruced up ready to go, but what if your date gets in your car and it smells a bit odd?  Make sure your car looks clean and smells good!

4) Drive safe! Being the perfect date often involves being a good driver! Most dates happen after work hours, which usually mean at sunset or later. Driving during this time can have their own challenges, but don’t lose your cool. With some HD Night Vision glasses, you can keep yourself – and your date – safe on the busy, nighttime roads. HD Night Vision glasses allow you to look cool and it helps you and your date arrive to your destinations safely.

5) Do NOT argue! It’s your first date, and you may want to take the lead and pay. If your date wants to pay as well, don’t start arguing with him or her. Arguing is great way to ruin a perfect date.  If they want to pay, let them.  Simply tell them that the next date is your turn to pay.

Use these tips for HD Night Vision Glasses to make your date memorable and fun…and enjoy the romance on those summer time dates!

HD Night Vision Glasses are for Co-Driver’s Too!

Driving for long hours often leads to your eyes getting quite tired and there are times when having a co-driver is important. Co-drivers can help by providing you with food, drinks, or directions.  They can also help you to keep an eye on the road, making sure no animals run out in front of you, and helping you to notice important signs.  They also, of course, help the driver considerably by simply providing some conversation during the drive.

hd-night-vision-wraparounds-co-driver

But, what if the co-driver is having difficulty seeing in the dark? If the driver is having a hard time seeing, it’s possible the co-driver is as well.  No one likes those bright, headlights coming at you!  It’s also possible that your co-driver has special conditions that make it harder for them to see during night time conditions.  Without proper night time eye wear, your co-driver may not be able to offer you much assistance.

With HD Night Vision Glasses you can help your own eyesight while driving at night AND your co-driver’s eyesight. HD Night Vision Glasses can be worn over glasses comfortably and safely, and they help to reduce that annoying headlight glare.

Help your co-driver help you providing them with a pair of their very own HD Night Vision Glasses!
