SHEDDING LIGHT ON HEADLIGHT AIMING FOR ROAD SAFETY
AutoTest’s Headlight Align ensures vehicles meet the necessary standards
Headlights are not just an accessory for vehicles; they are an essential and mandatory component ensuring road safety, especially in low-light conditions.
Proper headlight aiming and usage is critical to enhance visibility and comply with legal obligations.
Drivers must adhere to certain regulations concerning the use of headlights to maintain safety on the road, including avoiding lights that dazzle other road users; refraining from using high beams when vehicles are nearby; and proper use of fog lights based on specific weather conditions. Drivers also have legal obligations regarding headlight maintenance and replacement.
Newer vehicles come equipped with daytime running lights, enhancing vehicle visibility, and reducing the risk of accidents, especially during the day.
Not all headlights are created equal. Modern vehicles often incorporate powerful LED headlights, while some drivers opt for aftermarket LED bulbs. However, incorrect installation can result in hazardous glare for oncoming drivers.
