In many instances, driving at night is not out of the ordinary and in some cases, depending upon the Principal’s schedule, preferences or proclivities, is the norm. And while fatigue is always a concern when it comes to driving at night, there are other risks that the driver must consider and account for.

That’s where someone with a vested interest in the response to a given question creates a digital “alter ego”, or uses a surrogate, to ask a particular question and then offers up a response that meets their objective.
