Check your headlights

With Daylight Savings Time ending and (hopefully) winter storms arriving before too long, this is a good time for all drivers to check their headlights. Every day I see cars with one headlight out or dimmer than the other. It would help us all be safer if we all make sure our vehicle lights are in good working order.

And when it is dark and people drive outside of town in areas without other lighting it’s practical to use high beams. But those can dazzle the vision of cars coming from the opposite direction. I try always to lower my headlights when a vehicle is approaching from the opposite direction.

Let’s all try to be sure the lights on our cars and trucks help keep the roads safer.
