During night drives, the risk of accidents significantly increases compared to car trips in the daytime. Although the analysis of the "Statistics on Traffic Accidents on German Streets" [Sch09] shows that from 1998 until 2008 the number of accidents occurring at night have slightly decreased (at a night traffic volume of approximately 20% [JSK+08]), the severety of those accidents remains unchanged. The fatality rate of night-time accidents is twice as high as of accidents which happen during the day.
