For Pete’s sake…turn your lights on!

For the decades I’ve spent in road safety, I try to shed some light on many topics to help people become better drivers. Sometimes, drivers need to shed some light with their vehicles. For the past few years, I’ve noticed more and more vehicles on the road while it’s dark outside with low wattage headlights turned on and no tail lights turned on. For the most part, these drivers are unaware they are creating issues.

Key Takeaways:

  • I’ve noticed more and more vehicles on the road while it’s dark outside with low wattage headlights turned on and no tail lights turned on.
  • DRL’s become a danger to that driver and those around them. DRL’s on many makes of vehicles do not put on the rear lights.
  • The best thing we can do as drivers is to manually turn on your low beam headlights.
