If you only drive at night occasionally, make sure you use a chart so you know where the markers are and get a 300,000 candle power hand held spot light that plugs into the cig lighter.
If you plan to travel at night often, invest in one of those cool chart plotters. They are cheap and when you go to the fireworks, or anywhere else, it will draw a line on the chart. Hit the return button and follow the line home. Of course you still need a foward look out. But someone holding the light and watching plus following the line that you know is safe to travel should allow you to run on plane with confidence at night.
Also, turn off or cover with black tape any nav lights that throw white light into the cabin. Just cover the part of the light you need to block out. Not the entire light.
