Car Lights Missing-it is important to check your lights to make sure that you can be seen.

Car Lights Missing

Have you noticed all the “one eyed monster” with car lights missing

With the nights now getting visibly darker. Then it is just as well that we have well lit roads and well-lit highways. Generally, this is very important. We have probably one of the best after dark road light systems in the developed world.  Car lights are a safety critical aspect of motoring. But it seems that more and more cars are driving on our roads with lights out.

I have often noticed that cars on the continent. Especially France drive about all the time with on or more of their  car lights not working. of course, the cars in France have a slight excuse. Because they only have an Car Lights MissingMOT every two years. Although, this is no excuse ! firstly, because of the safety concerns. Developing  by having car lights out.

I call them “ one-eyed monsters”. Secondly, I feel that drivers have NO excuse for driving about in the dark without the full compliment of light bulbs in working order. Your car lights play a vital role in the safety of your vehicle and indeed other road users including pedestrians.

It is paramount that you check your lights all the time especially in the winter time. 

We at Pellon auto centre . Cannot believe the number of cars that are failing the MOT test. Because of light bulbs that are defective. I can not believe the number of cars that I have seen driving along the M62 motorway of poor visibility such as heavy rain or even fog with a head light off; it is entirely irresponsible.

These days many car manufacturers are fitting light bulb warning lights to alert the motorist that a bulb is out this is a great step forward, and it will be a much safer World when all cars have these sensors fitted.

 Car Lights Missing;Remember to get your car lights checked out every week there is no excuse its dangerous
