Daylight Savings Time Ends November 1st, Check Vehicle Lights

The end of Daylight Savings Time happens in most parts of the United States on Sunday, November 1st and creates unfamiliar driving conditions that can be hazardous without proper vehicle lighting. Douglas Automotive Repair recommends vehicle lights be checked before the clocks “fall back” to help ensure safe driving, especially during dusk and peak evening traffic hours.night-driving-06-0312-lgn

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.

Douglas Automotive Repair conducts a basic safety inspection, including lights and wipers, with every oil change. Give us a call today!
