More than half the vehicles on the road had serious lighting system faults. A prominent problem was incorrect adjustment of the headlamps and fog lamps. In addition to difficulties with height adjustment, “no-name bulbs” are often at the root of the problem. If such products are used for replacement, manufacturing inaccuracies alone lead to headlamp misalignment. An incalculable risk, as defective or incorrectly adjusted headlamps represent a danger to all road users.
Do you consider that good visibility is the most important factor when driving? It is equally important to be clearly seen by others. If a brake light is not functioning properly for example, rear-end collisions become almost inevitable. The same is true of a defective turn signal indicator. And changing weather conditions, frost, heat and dirt all take their toll on wipers. So, it goes without saying that wiper replacement is essential from time to time. All of these are good reasons for regular checking of the lights and wipers in your vehicle.
