Headlight Maintenance Can Improve Nighttime Safety

In a recent study produced by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute,

about 2,500 pedestrians are killed at night every year crossing the road. Why?  Poor lighting from a vehicle’s headlights. Bulb dimness and hazy headlight covers can be the difference between seeing properly and having to avoid an accident because visibility is low.

What causes your headlights to become yellow and hazy? Environmental factors like road salt, pollution and extreme temperature fluctuations can eat away at the clear coat, causing the light to reflect poorly at night time. While most people don’t think about headlight maintenance aside from changing a bulb when it’s out, keeping tabs on each component can ensure that you’re doing your part to prevent unnecessary accidents when driving at night.

We have some tips and tricks to make sure your visibility is the best it can be.

Keep them Clean

At the gas station, use the windshield washer and give them a quick scrub. Dirt and dust can cause glares, which makes proper lighting in front of your vehicle difficult.

Are your headlight covers yellow and dingy even after a scrub? Try Mighty’s Headlight Restoration Kit. You’ll avoid replacement costs with this easy process that includes resurfacing plus the application of a unique coating to help restore clarity and brightness to your vehicle’s lenses. You’ll increase safety in less than 20 minutes of application time with long-lasting results and save money because you won’t need to replace your headlights. No tools needed.

Calibrate Your Headlights

It’s not uncommon for headlights to be knocked out of alignment, just like your tires. Making sure your headlights are pointed where they should be can also increase safety, and help you see better at night. Talk to your auto technician about performing this service for you.

Replace Bulbs in Pairs

If it’s been a few years since you’ve replaced a bulb, chances are it’s time to do it again. Replacing the bulbs before a burnout ensure less headaches down the road, so you’re never left in the dark while driving. Replacing in pairs is the safest choice.

For more information on maintaining safety for your headlights, ask an auto technician professional for tips and tricks to keep them at their brightest. If you’d like to check out Mighty’s Headlight Restoration Kit, talk to your Mighty Auto Parts rep, or visit our website.
