There are various types of lights on a vehicle each having its own purpose and importance. Here are some of the important vehicle lights that are used often to avoid accidents and ensure safety.
The headlight plays an important role in improving the driving experience. They help the driver see clearly during different weather conditions and especially at night. The headlights are mounted on the front of the vehicle and its main purpose is to illuminate the road during the night, foggy, and low light conditions. It helps prevent accidents and ensures the safety of the vehicle and the passengers. Always make sure to keep the headlights clean by taking preventive measures as it is really necessary. Headlights have two features mainly to help you see clear at close distance and other helps you see the far-off objects. It is suggested by mechanics to use genuine products for headlight or headlamps rather than aftermarket or cheap alternatives to avoid any risks.
The purpose of the tail lamp is simple. It helps the people see you from far or at a reduced distance when coming from behind to overtake you. It helps them to see you and judge whether to slow down the car, apply brakes immediately or to overtake you and go ahead. The tail lamp requires the same amount of maintenance as the headlights as the both their purposes are same. The safety it ensures is really important for a driver.
The fog lights are considered to be a safety feature. They are designed to help the driver see at low speed and to let them see the surface and verges of the road more clearly. The fog lamps play an important role when the visibility is really poor in rainy, foggy, dusty, or snowy conditions. If you live in an area which receives or faces a lot of snowfall, rain or dust storms, it is suggested by the mechanics to use fog lamps and maintain them for better visibility.
The indicator lights are located on the front, back, and side of the car. Sometimes on the side-view mirrors as well. These indicators play a really important role in ensuring safety while driving. These indicators help the driver to show other drivers from the other side of the road and from behind to understand which way he wants to go or turn. They are used while making left or right turns and while overtaking. Their importance cannot be ignored and it is necessary to get the lights replaced if one of them stops working.
The brake lights are on the back of the car while light up when the brake pedal is pressed to slow down or stop the car. This is considered to be one of the most important light as it indicates the cars behind what you are doing. Whether you are slowing down due to some reason, applying the emergency brake, the driver in the car behind will look at the brake light to understand what you are doing or about to do. It is a sort of a sign that helps avoid numerous accidents.
