Don't forget to get your headlights checked, it getting darker earlier now
The end of Daylight Savings Time has happened in most parts of the United States and since it now gets darker earlier this can create unfamiliar driving conditions that can be hazardous without proper vehicle lighting. The Car Care Council recommends vehicle lights be checked when we "fall back" to help ensure safe driving, especially during dusk and peak evening traffic hours.
A vehicle's lighting system includes headlights (high and low beam), parking lights, turn signals/emergency flashers, brake lights, tail and marker lights, backup lights, interior lights and instrumentation lighting. Some vehicles are also equipped with fog lights.
Headlights should also be periodically cleaned of mud and muck, and properly aimed according to procedures outlined in the owner's manual. Headlights can be knocked out of alignment by rough driving, and if not properly aimed, can be distracting to other drivers.
Vehicle inspections during National Car Care Month in the United States have shown lighting to be an often neglected maintenance item, with 8 percent of vehicles inspected needing work on at least one of their turn signals, and 6 percent having problems with at least one of their brake lights.
