The headlights are important for your vehicle. They will illuminate the road ahead of you so that you can see properly. Ideally you should see ahead of you, and then off to each side toward the ditch. Being able to see toward the side helps prevent an animal jumping out suddenly without you noticing. While it does happen, you may be prepared by seeing in the ditch. Besides your own visibility, headlights help others to see you as well. This can be other drivers, animals, or those along side streets or sidewalks. If you need to operate the windshield wipers, make sure that you turn on the lights of your vehicle. If the weather is less than ideal, then visibility is poor as well.

Wipers on mean Lights on

No matter what sort of precipitation is happening, you will want to have the windshield wipers on. With rain, sleet, or snow, you will want to be as visible to others as much as possible. This can help reduce the chance of an accident. Also remember to leave enough space between you and the vehicle in front of you. This can also help you to be more visible to other drivers. If you notice a light is out, you will want to bring the vehicle in as soon as possible. We can inspect the vehicle and the lights to ensure they are able to illuminate the road properly.

Also check the blinkers and the hazard lights on your vehicle. If you do not check them, you have a risk of them failing. The blinkers are important because they alert others around you what direction you plan on turning. If the blinker is not working, it can result in a collision or accident when you are driving and trying to turn.
