When operating a vehicle, it is crucial your headlights and taillights are in working order. Not only do the headlights provide you with the ability to see at night and when weather conditions are unfavorable, but it allows other vehicles to see you. Your taillights are also an indicator to other vehicles that there is a vehicle in front of them. When you have a headlight or taillight that is not working, this increases the odds of an accident and decreases the safety of the vehicle.
How Do I Know if I Should Replace my Headlights or Taillights?
You should replace your headlights and taillights as soon as they burnout. Your headlights may become dimmer or start to flicker when they are close to dying. This is also a time to consider getting them replaced. When your lights burnout completely, you will want to have that bulb switched for a new one. If possible, have both bulbs switched since odds are the other headlight or taillight is not far behind and will burnout soon.
While it is easier to tell if a headlight is burned out, since it will be more difficult to drive and see at night, it can be harder to tell if a taillight is out. One easy way to test this is to pull in front of a window, apply the brakes, and check your taillights in the window’s reflection. If this does not work, have a family member, friend, or co-worker stand behind your vehicle while you apply the brakes. They can let you know if one of the lights is not working or dim.
