How much do you know about the correct use of car lights?1

Car lights are very important to drivers. Each type of car lights has different purposes. Correct use of car lights is beneficial to driving safety. However, some lights are used under special circumstances, and because the frequency of use is relatively low, they can sometimes cause danger.

Let's take a look at how to use various car lights and how to correctly operate and use car lights in special environments.

How much do you know about the correct use of car lights?1 1


Headlights are often referred to as headlights, which are mainly used for driving at night and are divided into high beam and low beam. When overtaking, switch between high and low beams, and when passing another car, switch to low beams. Use headlights in a civilized manner and be responsible for others and yourself.

daytime running lights

Daytime running lights have only emerged in recent years. As the name suggests, they are lights used during the day. They are generally white LED (more power-saving) diffused lights. The daytime running lights are very bright and serve to warn pedestrians and other vehicles to ensure safe driving.

The width light

The functions of width indicator lights and daytime running lights are similar, except that the former is used at night and in environments with poor visibility such as rain and fog. The width indicator lights are distributed at the four corners of the car body, making it easier for third parties to distinguish the outline of the car body and increasing driving safety.

Turn signal

When driving and encountering turns or merging, it will be used to remind other pedestrians and vehicles to pay attention, and double flashing lights will appear in emergency situations. The turn signal should be turned on in advance to give the third party enough time to react.

brake light

The red light will illuminate as soon as the brakes are applied to remind the vehicle behind to slow down or stop to prevent rear-end collisions.

reversing light

When the reverse gear is engaged, the white reversing light will automatically light up to remind third parties to pay attention to safety.

fog lights

Fog lights must be turned on in foggy weather. Due to the high penetrability of fog lights, the visibility of the vehicle to third parties on the opposite side is improved, allowing them to avoid and drive safely. Turn off the fog lights promptly after parking to prevent damage to the fog lights.

License Plate Light

As the name suggests, it is a light that illuminates the license plate. It is mainly turned on at night or when the weather is bad. Regulations require that the license plate can be seen clearly within 20 meters, and it is controlled by the same switch as the width indicator light.

Let’s take a look at daily life

How to use lights in these situations

evening and night

In the evening, the sky has darkened. If the driver does not turn on the lights at this time, the driving trend of the vehicle will become unclear to other drivers, making it difficult for other drivers to judge the speed and distance of the vehicle.

Of course, turning on the car lights is also particular. For example, when meeting cars at night, we must turn off the high beam lights to avoid causing danger to the drivers of other vehicles.

Car lights that should be turned on: In the evening when the sky is dark, you can turn on the wide beam lights; when driving at night, you should turn on the low beam lights; if the weather conditions are good, do not turn on the high beam lights or fog lights when driving on urban roads at night.

Rainy and foggy weather

Visibility in rainy and foggy weather is inherently low. If the driver does not turn on the lights, his or her car will be "invisible" when driving in the rain and fog. Even if other drivers' vision reaches pilot level, they want to see clearly without turning on the lights. Not an easy task either.

Car lights that should be turned on: When visibility is not bad, the width lights can be turned on; when visibility is poor, low beam lights and fog lights should be turned on.

Tunnel driving

The light in the tunnel is not good, but not many drivers, no matter whether they are novices or experienced drivers, develop the habit of turning on their lights when entering tunnels. Some people think that they can see clearly and there is no need to turn on the lights. Some people think that it is easy to forget to turn off the lights after turning on the lights and leaving the tunnel... There are various reasons, but they do not consider the issue of driving safety.

Car lights that should be turned on: low beam lights are sufficient. Do not turn on high beam lights or fog lights, because the hazards of too dazzling car lights are the same as not turning on the lights.

underground garage

Nowadays, many underground garages not only lack light, but also have a very compact layout. Narrow parking spaces, right-angle bends, steep slopes and other difficult projects test the driving skills of car owners, and they have become accident-prone places. Turn on your car lights to remind others of your location, which can effectively reduce risk factors.
