Your poor vision may not be the reason you cannot see while driving at night. It may be that your vehicle’s headlights have been dimming over time. Fortunately, replacing headlights is a simple and inexpensive way to make night driving safer for anyone.
At Integrity Automotive, we can let you know for sure if it’s the right time to change your headlights. Not only that, but we would be more than happy to do the job for you so it’s one less thing on your to do list! More frequently, car manufacturers are making it more difficult to get headlight replacement changes done for the average consumer. That’s why it’s best if you don’t know what you’re doing to bring your car to a mechanic you trust to take care of the service for you.
There are other ways to minimize the dangers of night driving or under difficult weather conditions, particularly if you find yourself driving with dim or misaligned headlights. Keep your headlights in good working order by following these easy tips:
- Give your headlights a quick scrub to get rid of debris when you wash your windows at the gas station. Clean headlights help you see better at night and in poor weather conditions. This small task can also help prevent glare, which can be intensified by dust and dirt on the glass.
- Don’t wait for your headlights to dim and burn out before you replace them. Most headlights will dim over time. Replacing them regularly will ensure the best lighting performance.
- Replace your headlights in pairs to avoid uneven illumination, which can diminish driving visibility.
- Consider replacing standard halogen headlights with high performance headlights that produce a light closer in color to natural daylight. These whiter, brighter bulbs help improve your visibility at night.
- Ask your technician at Integrity Auto to check that your headlights are properly adjusted. Headlights can be knocked out of alignment by rough driving and, if not properly aimed, can be distracting to other drivers.
- Take a moment to periodically check that all your car lights are in good working order. Ask a friend to turn on the headlights, brake lights and turn signals as you walk around the outside of the car
