The ‘Light’er Side of Things

Safety, Trending Automotive News on June 21, 2016

When you think of car care, you likely think about a lot of things; tires, fluids, air conditioning, engines, and brakes. But, believe it or not, the lights on your car contribute to keeping safe when driving.

Sure, if a taillight goes out you’re not going to get stranded, but you could risk getting hit from behind. So, drivers should pay particular attention to maintaining the lights to keep their car in great shape.

There is no specific time to get your lights replaced. Often times, it’s simply when a headlamp or taillight goes out. Still, there are many other lights needed to drive your car safely.

Take a look:

  • Headlamps
  • Taillights
  • Reverse lights
  • Brake lights
  • High beams
  • Blinkers
  • License plate light
  • Emergency flashers

Another consideration to have the safest lights possible is to have clean, bright lights.   There are plenty of good products on the market to clean clouded light covers.

The best time to address your car’s lighting system is when you do your routine maintenance on your car.
