It is Important to Make Sure Your Headlights are Working Properly

According to statistics, about half of fatal accidents happen at night and a large percentage of these occur on unlit roads. For this reason, it is very important to keep your headlights working properly. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) found that many vehicles had headlights that are performing below factory standards. Below are some steps to improve your headlight system.

The first thing you want to do is check your headlight enclosures, which are prone to getting oxidized or damaged. This is especially true in hot climates. Have them cleaned or replaced as necessary.

If your headlights are in good condition but still are under performing, upgrading to brighter bulbs or adding external fog lights can improve your system.
