For most people, the last Sunday in October simply means an extra hour in bed. However, for those that spend their working life on the road, the end of Daylight Saving Time in the UK also signifies risky months of winter driving ahead.

Government statistics suggest that more accidents occur during summer months. But even so, the mere thought of shorter days and longer nights, combined with the risk of ice and snow, is enough to send a chill through even the hardiest of commercial drivers.

Forewarned is forearmed. Drivers should be aware of the changes and adapt their driving behaviour to suit the changed conditions. This means taking extra caution as darkness encroaches on the working day and evening commute.

Promoting road safety is a key part of our mission. We’ve created an infographic for drivers about driving in the dark to help promote safer roads for us all.
