Vehicle safety has various points of view, but it is known that some aspects are considered more than others. For example, the strength of the bodywork, seat head restraints, brakes, and passenger safety in the car have received most of the attention in relation to the safety of vehicles on the road.
With the use of security cameras, on-board computers, helping drivers and other warning technologies are just a few proofs of this. The spotlights are the forgotten ones when it comes to car safety. Some of the accidents happen at night on the roads due to insufficient lighting, so we can't put that aside when it comes to the condition of these lights and whether they can help reduce or prevent an accident.
The care of the operation of the lights has been put aside not only among drivers, but also among car owners and passengers, since many believe that as long as the car shines with the lights (even if it is dim) it will be enough. So how intense would the light emitted by your car's headlights be enough? What lighting technology can provide appropriate security?
Light Emitting Diode (LED) and High Intensity Discharge (HID) could have the answers that technology has been struggling to solve the problem. These two are used especially in hydrogen lamps, which have been phased out little by little. We also have adaptive cornering lights and road light assistants that are used in cars.
Adaptive cornering lights have a unique ability to adapt to the direction of the car; on the other hand, the high beam assistant allows drivers to switch between high and low beams. According to a study by the UK Institute of Road Safety in 2016, half of the models of small SUVs had poor lighting, including the Audi Q3, Honda HR-V and Subaru Forester.
Other car models such as the Hyundai, the Nissan Altima, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the Mercedes-Benz CLA, and the Volkswagen Passat were found to have poor headlights. GMC, Toyota Tundra, and Toyota Tacoma trucks were also found to have poor headlighting as well.
The complexity of the problems of the lights depends on the case of each person; This is because some only need to adjust the intensity of the light. It is recommended that drivers and car owners make sure they take care of the condition of their bulbs so that it is adequate.
