Many people only know how to turn lights on and off, but do not understand which lights to use under what circumstances. When driving at night or in special weather, the visibility is poor. If you use lights indiscriminately or do not turn on the corresponding lights, it will increase the chance of accidents. Here I will give you a brief introduction to the lighting knowledge commonly used in cars.

Common vehicle lighting knowledge

1. Position lights - This light should be turned on on rainy days, dark weather or in underground parking lots. The profile lights are on, and the tail lights at the back are used to indicate vehicles behind you, so be careful to keep a distance; the lights in the front are used to remind oncoming vehicles, so pay attention to the lateral distance.

2. Headlights (far and low beam) - When driving at night, it is better to use low beam when the light is better, and when the light is poor, use high beam. However, when encountering a car or following a car, you need to switch to low beam.

The meanings of commonly used lantern languages:

Flash the high beamThank you

High beam flashes twice - to remind the other party

High beam flashes three times - indicating that there is a problem with the vehicle in front

Continuous flashing of high beam - indicates dissatisfaction, use with caution

3. Turn signals - When changing lanes, starting, turning, or making a U-turn, you need to use the left and right turn signals in time to alert surrounding vehicles.

4. Double flashing lights - This light should be turned on through the corresponding switch when the vehicle is in an emergency.

Broken down and parked on the roadside, towing a broken down vehicle, driving slowly or parking on the roadside in poor condition

Convoy driving together

Signal the passing vehicles and get out of the car by opening the door

When making a short stop on the side of a city road or an emergency parking zone on a highway, etc.

5. Brake lights - when you press the brake pedal, the brake lights at the rear of the car will light up, attracting the attention of the car behind you, indicating that the car in front is slowing down. Please note that the car behind you should also take corresponding deceleration measures.

6. Rear fog lamp - used when there is fog, heavy rain or snow, or poor visibility on the road. The penetrating power of fog lights is much stronger than that of driving lights. When there is no fog, turning on fog lights will not only fail to serve as a warning, but will also affect the vision of other traffic participants due to their brightness being too bright, affecting traffic safety.

7. Daytime running lights - Vehicles with daytime running lights will automatically turn on when starting, regardless of day or night.

Proper use of car lights has become a common method of communication between every driver. Civilized driving not only brings convenience to driving, but also provides an additional guarantee for your safe driving.
