TIPS FOR DRIVING AT NIGHT...Use your bright lights when driving in rural areas and on open highways away from urban and metropolitan areas. If you are driving with your high beam lights on or your low beam lights with fog lights on, you must dim them before coming within 500 feet of any oncoming vehicle so the oncoming driver is not blinded by the glare. When following another vehicle, you must use your low beam lights, with your fog lights off, if you are within 200 feet of the vehicle ahead of you.
