Night-time driving not only diminishes a driver's visibility, but also their distance and speed perception, making it harder to judge a situation. Driving at night, particularly out-of-town, exposes drivers to poorly lit roads, other speeding drivers, drunk road-users, other vehicles with partially functional lights and stray cattle or goats.
Research indicates that although we generally do only 25% of our driving at night, this activity carries a fatal-accident rates risk that is three times greater at night than during the day. These statistics apply to first world countries and are no doubt considerably higher in Africa.
This is aggravated by the fact that the incidence of drunk driving and alcohol related accidents significantly increase after hours as shown by the graph below:-
