Bright Ideas for Safer Driving

​Headlights (high and low bean) are powerful lights mounted to the front of your vehicle that help illuminate the roadway in front of you. Four headlight systems use seperate bulbs for the low beams and high beams.  

Safer ligthing means safer driving.

Dim or misaligned headlights can make night driving dangerous.  These simple lighting tips from SYLVANIA can help make night driving safer.  

Change your headlights in pairs, before they burn out.

Most headlights dim over time. Evaluate your lighting every year for optimal performance. Replacement ensures that your headlights will always be their brightest.

Upgrade to high performance halogen lighting.  

SYLVANIA SilverStar® Ultra headlights produce a brighter, whiter light.  Studies have shown that whiter halogen ligthing can improve your reaction time, increase your nighttime visibility and give you better roadside viewing.

Check your headlight alignment.

Misaimed headlights can be distracting and dangerous.  Ask your auto service technician to align them for you.

Clean your headlights regularly. 

Wash your headlights when you wash your windshield.  You'll see better and it helps prevent glare. 

Make sure all your vehicle lights are working.  

Have a friend turn on your headlights and signal lights while you walk around the outside of your vehicle.
