Me, I drive differently at night than I do in the day.
I'm always more conscious of using up less fuel, and driving carefully and being conscious of other road users in things like indicating to pull out across parked cars and stuff like that that seems to be lost after people pass their test.
But I also work with a lot of people in the US and Canada, which means on large projects I end up being awake from around 4pm to 7am. So, half my driving ends up being in the silent hours of the early morning. I find myself probably driving a little slower at these times, and more concerned with what's towards the side of the car, than what's in front of me. I tend to drive with full beams on pretty much all the time unless there's another vehicle coming or I'm in a town centre.
And sometimes I just get the sudden urge to pull over and just be "in the moment" for a while. So I do. Spend 5, 10 minutes just at the side of the road on a rest stop listening to Radio 4 or something and watching all the wildlife. Would never do that in the day for some reason.
Do you find that you have two different "styles" of driving, depending on day or night? Or are you just consistent throughout?
Do you have different driving styles?
