Headlight safety

It's important to remember the primary function of headlights: to allow good visibility in poor conditions. By providing light on the landscape in front of you, allows you to know your surroundings and make safer choices in case of an emergency. Damaged or cloudy headlights dramatically reduce (or possibly eliminate) the overall visibility. Which of course, creates a much dangerous surrounding for the driver and passengers.

Another factor to remember regarding a vehicle's headlights, it is just as important to be seen by other motorists. Making sure your headlights provide enough light to see but also for other cars to see you and your direction. Properly working headlights allow other cars to predict your movement, exactly like daytime driving allows. Headlight maintenance is a quick once over that you can do at home. If you see something that you question, it is important to get your car serviced right away.
