Car knowledge: How much do you know about the language of car lights?

1. The vehicle in front does not move when the light turns green.

Light language: The headlights flash once

When waiting for a car at an intersection, when the light turns green, sometimes you will encounter a situation where the car in front is motionless. Maybe he was a newbie, nervous and slow to start. Maybe the driver in front of him didn't pay attention to the change of the indicator light and was distracted when waiting for the red light. When encountering this situation, honking the horn wildly is obviously not appropriate. We can use flashing headlights instead of honking the horn rudely. Flashing the headlights once will usually make the car in front aware of the situation. If there is still no movement, flash the headlights again. Do not flash the headlights continuously. This is disrespectful to people and can easily cause the driver of the car in front to become rebellious.

2. Merge when encountering vehicles

Light language: The headlights flash "Agree", the headlights flash continuously "Reject"

On elevated roads, highways and some ordinary roads, lanes merge often occur. At elevated ramps, traffic must pass alternately. In this case, if the communication between cars is not ideal, it is likely to cause a collision accident. It is very dangerous to compete with each other in merging or intersections. Cars that need to merge cannot forcefully change lanes directly. When a car prompts that a lane change is needed, should you agree to the other party's lane change or reject the other party's request? It is required that the car behind must give the other party a clear reminder.

3. Found something wrong with the neighboring car

Light language: The headlights flash three times

A light reminder that you need to stop and pull over for inspection. If a rider notices something wrong with a neighboring car, he or she can flash the headlights three times in succession for the car ahead, and then flash the headlights three more times when the driver of the car ahead notices the light. Of course, if someone flashes their headlights at you three times, you should also pay attention. Maybe there is something wrong with your car, and the car behind you is giving you a friendly reminder.

4. The car behind you follows the car too closely

Light language: Brake lights illuminate periodically

When driving on the highway, maintaining an appropriate safe distance is an effective way to avoid accidents. However, sometimes some people like to follow cars at high speeds and keep a relatively close distance. In this case, the driver of the car in front will definitely disperse. You should use part of your energy to "pay attention" to the car behind you, and you will inevitably have to worry about whether the car behind you will hit you because you didn't brake in time. At this time, the car in front must find a way to give a warning to the car behind, telling the car behind not to follow it closely. At this time, the brake light must be used.

5. Encountered by strong lights at night

Light language: Two headlights remind, double flashes indicate dissatisfaction

When driving at night, the biggest headache for everyone is to encounter someone who turns on the high beam all the way. This behavior of not switching the lights when meeting a car is not uncommon when driving at night. In fact, when driving in urban areas at night, in most cases there are good lighting on the road, so there is no need to turn on the headlights brightly. On road sections where road lighting is not ideal, turning on the headlights is an important factor in inducing car accidents.

6. Remind pedestrians or non-motorized vehicles to pay attention

Light language: The headlights flash continuously, and suddenly the low beam changes to high beam.

At night, pedestrians and non-motorized vehicles such as electric bicycles crossing the road at will bring great safety risks to driving. At this time, we can only use strobe headlights to dissuade. To avoid collisions between pedestrians and non-motorized vehicles crossing the road. There is also a situation where pedestrians or non-motorized vehicles cannot judge the speed and distance of vehicles at night and may risk crossing the road. At this time, it is more effective to dissuade by changing the low beam headlights into high beam headlights. The high beam illumination distance is strong.

7. Be careful when entering or exiting alleys or blind spots.

Light language: flash the headlights three times, auxiliary honk

Alleys in the south or alleys in the north are more likely to have blind spots. At this time, cars or pedestrians coming from the alleys cannot sense the traffic at the entrance of the alley or alley. Therefore, drivers who need to enter an alley are best to flash their headlights three times. To remind oncoming vehicles or pedestrians to pay attention. Some drivers like to turn on high beam when entering alleys or alleys, thinking that it can serve as a warning. In fact, this idea is wrong because many pedestrians or drivers cannot judge distance by light. Therefore, the flash reminder is far more effective than the high beam.

Summary: Car lighting language is a new driving technology that allows car owners to alert other vehicles and pedestrians through changes in lighting. At present, many car owners only let the lights illuminate their eyes, but the lights can also assist driving and improve driving safety.
