Headlight Maintenance 101
National Car Care Month: Headlight Maintenance 101
When is the last time you changed your headlights?
October is the perfect time to get your vehicle ready for spring and summer, when most road travel occurs.
Not only does October mark the end of winter, but it’s also National Car Care Month.
While many focus on oil changes, brake pads and tire pressure checks, there’s one safety element that’s critical yet often overlooked – vehicle headlight maintenance.
Headlights are an active safety item and are the first line of defense on a vehicle; if drivers cannot see objects on the road, they cannot react.
To prevent this, drivers must be proactive about headlight maintenance.
Proper maintenance maximizes the amount drivers can see down road and side road, which can mean additional reaction time, helping you to avoid hazards that cause accidents.
