Much Overlooked Headlight Safety 

For safety you may give your main focus on brake pads and wear and tear on your tires. But there is one more critical area you may have taken for granted…

Your headlights!

Think about it. If you cannot see the objects clearly on the road, how are you to react?

That is why it is very important to be proactive about headlight maintenance.

You want to maximize what you can see down the road and to the side of the road ahead.

This may allow you extra reaction time which can be the difference of life and death while keeping you from road hazards which may cause accidents.

So what can you do to keep your headlights at peak performance?

If you can’t remember the last time you replaced your headlights it may be time to do so.

If you have a headlight burn out while you are driving at night on a dark road you pose a danger to both you and others on the road.

This is because with one headlight out, you are only seeing half as well as you should or could be.

It is also very important to replace your headlights in sets of two.

This is because headlights dim over their lifetime and a new bulb paired with an old bulb will create an uneven field of vision.

This can be a distraction for both you and the oncoming drivers.

Don’t worry, this is a maintenance job that is easy and relatively inexpensive for you to do yourself and really doesn’t require a mechanic.

In fact, there are many online guides and resources to help you swap out headlight bulbs in a matter of minutes.

Just consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual or online for bulb/headlight replacement procedures, needed tools and safety precautions.
