The lights of the vehicle may go unnoticed until they are needed. This could mean that there is an issue once they are turned on. It is important to have the lights inspected regularly. Even if you do not plan on driving at night or when it is dark, you may encounter thunderstorms or fog. If the weather is less than ideal, remember to turn the lights on. A good rule to follow is if the windshield wipers are operating, then the headlights should be turned on as well. This will help improve the safety as you drive.
Aiming the lights
Remember that the lights should be checked to make sure they illuminate the road properly. If you cannot see a few feet in front of the vehicle, make sure to contact us for an appointment. Also remember that the lights should not be aimed off to one side or the other. The lights should not be aimed at oncoming traffic. This will impair their vision and decrease safety for everyone around them. Also make sure that the lights are not aimed to high or too low. If you are not sure the correct position of them, contact us to bring the vehicle in for an inspection.
At the same time, remember to check the turn signals of the vehicle. Those drivers around you will need to know what direction you plan on turning. If a blinker is out, then a driver may try to pass on the side which you plan on turning. Check the brake lights and taillights as well. Drivers behind your vehicle should see where your car is, to help avoid an accident or rear end collision. If you turn on the signals and do not notice them working, always contact us as soon as you can. We will inspect the vehicle for you to help get it safe and reliable again.
