Have you practiced with night photography? In my limited experience with it, I find that a tripod or something to put your camera on is a must. A wireless remote would be ideal to avoid even more camera shake. Set your camera to manual mode and play around with the shutter speed. A slow shutter speed will pick up the lights and cause car lights to look like a line (as in the second photo), and the camera on a tripod will make the rest of the photo crisp and clear. I also like to set my ISO as low as I can to avoid grainy looking photos.
