Do you like driving on the open road at night (such as to/from vacation etc)??
Have you ever driven ALL night??

I hate it...... so I found out last night. My sister had a party to do in Timaru, so we drove down and I stayed at my Aunty & Uncles with niecey & Gaby... they are 2 hours away from where I live - and my sister got back REALLY late (ie midnight), so we were driving home in the early hours of the morning. I THOUGHT I was wide awake, but it didn't take long before I found myself feeling sleepy, and the road was confusing me... needless to say I had to pull over and let the sister drive - thank goodness she was awake enough! We got home at 2.15am, and I've never been SO glad to hop in bed!

I like to drive at night. The roads around here are most empty(to many crazy drivers during the day). And I've driven all night to a vacation point(before MaryBeth), my mom was with me and she stayed awake to keep me awake. I have never been so ready to climb out of a car into a bed!!

Never had a reason to drive all night so no I have not.

I dont mind driving at night on an open road but it becomes a bit uncomfy to my eyes after a while so I dont desire to do so unless necessary.

I really, really don't like driving at night. I don't like that it's hard to see, and the lights and things create glare that makes it even MORE difficult. I talked to my eye doctor about it a few years ago, and he said that my astigmatism was what made it so annoying for me. It helps that I wear contacts instead of glasses, but it is still yucky!

I hate driving at night. I have night blindness, so things get really blurry for me and it's awful. I avoid it at all costs.
