Everyone must learn the "Car Light Code"

Today, my neighbor Xiaobai ran over to me and said: "While driving on the Second Ring Road this afternoon, the car behind me flashed its headlights three times. What does that mean? I heard that the number of flashes of the headlights varies, and what it means. It’s different, please explain it to me.”

Every time Xiaobai encounters a car problem that he doesn’t understand, he likes to search it here. However, when he asked about the car lighting code words, many people are also confused. According to Xiaobai's description, I knew something must have happened to the vehicle while he was driving, and the car behind him flashed its lights three times to prompt him to stop and check. As expected, after a thorough inspection, I discovered that his right rear taillight was broken.

For cars, lighting is a very charming language to a certain extent. It can convey the owner's driving intentions to the owners of other vehicles through the lights, thereby avoiding some driving dangers. Today, the car media will explain to all new and old drivers that in addition to the normal lighting and warning functions of car lights, what other signals are sent by car lights in our daily driving? They are all useful information:

Scenario 1: The headlights flash

Light language: The vehicle in front will not move after the green light is on, and the vehicle in front will be reminded.

Everyone must learn the Car Light Code 1

Brief description: When waiting for a car at an intersection, when the light turns green, sometimes the car in front of you may encounter a new driver, nervousness, slow start, etc. It may be that the driver of the car in front is distracted and ignores the signal light prompts. At this time, it is obviously not appropriate to honk the horn wildly. We can use flashing headlights instead of rude horn noise to remind the car in front to move forward or give up the lane. 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.

Scenario 2: Merge when encountering a vehicle

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

Brief description: On elevated roads, highways and some ordinary roads, lane merging is often encountered. 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 must not 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. Generally speaking, a flash of headlights means "agree", and a continuous flash of headlights means "rejection", so you must pay attention to safety when merging.

Scenario 3: The headlights flash twice

Lantern language: express dissatisfaction

Brief description: In many driving situations, we will encounter a sudden strong light flashing into our eyes. This is likely to be because the other party forgot to turn off the high beam. Drivers can flash twice within a long distance before the meeting. Headlights, remind the other party to switch lights when meeting another car. If the other party is indifferent, the rider can show dissatisfaction by turning on the double-bounce lights and tell the other party, "You are flashing me, please switch to low beam."

Scenario 4: The headlights flash three times

Light language: Remind the vehicle ahead to check

Brief description: If we find that the door of the car in front is not closed properly, the taillight is burned out, the tire is flat, etc., we can flash the headlights of the car in front three times to remind the car in front to stop and check the vehicle. As the vehicle is driving, it is difficult for people in the vehicle to detect some conditions outside the vehicle body, such as abnormalities in the luggage compartment or doors, insufficient tire pressure, etc. Such driving may cause malfunctions at any time, and even affect the vehicles nearby, so a kind reminder It is still necessary. The situation described by Xiaobai belongs to this kind of code word.

Scenario 5: Continuously flashing headlights

Light language: reject the merge request of the vehicle next to you or remind pedestrians or non-motor vehicles that they are on a motor vehicle lane

Brief description: When a vehicle changes lanes, if the two parties do not reach an invisible agreement, it is easy for a collision or rear-end collision to occur. At this time, the vehicle changing lanes is often in front of the left or right side of the vehicle, so flashing the headlights is the most direct way to tell the other party whether you agree to the lane change. If we encounter the above situation, we should slow down and continuously flash our headlights to alert pedestrians or non-motor vehicle drivers.

Scenario 6: Turn on the brake lights periodically

Light language: Don’t follow the car too closely

Brief description: When driving on the highway, maintaining an appropriate safe distance is an effective way to avoid accidents. However, sometimes some people like to follow the car at high speed and keep a relatively close distance. In this case, the driver of the car in front will You will definitely divert some 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. When driving on the highway, the brake light is used in another way. When the car behind is too close to your own car, the driver of the car in front can lightly apply the brakes to remind the car behind "You are too close to me, you should stay away." ".

Scenario 7: Flash the high beam twice when meeting another car

Light language: Remind oncoming vehicles to switch from high beam to low beam

Brief description: When driving at night, in order to see a farther range of vision, most people will choose to turn on the high beam headlights. However, when meeting another car, the high-beam headlights shine directly into the eyes of the oncoming driver, which may even cause temporary blindness. So as for the next consequences, please figure it out by yourself. Therefore, if the vehicle in the opposite lane does not switch to low beam in time, please use the light language to prompt immediately.

Scenario 8: Flash the headlights three times, auxiliary honk

Lantern language: You need to be careful when entering or exiting alleys or blind spots.

Brief description: Alleys in the south or alleys in the north are more likely to have blind spots in the field of vision. 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.

Scene 9: A whistle and a high beam

Lantern language: I have something urgent, please give way

Brief description: As the saying goes, "People have three emergencies." When driving, conveying the information that you are "in an emergency" in a timely manner can protect yourself and surrounding vehicles. For other vehicles, it is for the sake of their own safety to be merciful and to give way reasonably.

Scenario 10: Three high beams plus double flashes

Lantern language: emergency help

Brief description: As the saying goes, "a distant relative is not as good as a close neighbor." When driving, you must learn to use lights to call for help. Use three high beam flashes and double flashes to create a sense of crisis. At this time, vehicles with conditions for rescue will lend a helping hand. This advantage is easy to operate and has a wide delivery range. At least there is no need to paint a big "SOS" with paint.
