Your Headlights Are Probably Failing You

Testing Shows That Your Headlights Are Probably Failing You

Driving at night is risky, since about half of the fatal accidents on the road occur at this time. New studies from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety show that the fact that you can’t see very far ahead of you while driving may not have anything to do with how well your vision is. In fact, there’s a chance that your vehicle’s headlights are to blame. Because of poor government regulation of headlights there’s a lot of variation in different car makes and models. depending on the car you have you might be at a greater risk to get in an accident at night because your headlights are working properly.

Only One Midsize Vehicle Had Good Headlight Ratings By The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety

The IIHS took vehicle headlights out of the laboratory and onto the road in order to test safety ratings. what they found is that in the midsize car category, most vehicle headlights are failing drivers. Testers measured how far ahead of a vehicle they could see on and straight and curved paths and curved gradual paths. they also tested what the headlights looked like from oncoming traffic to make sure that there was no glare, which can put other drivers at risk. they took a look at both high and low beams while measuring the distance that you can see an obstruction from the road. Surprisingly only one 2016 model made the cut.

Just Because You Pay More For A Car Doesn’t Mean That Your Vehicle Has Safer Headlights

There are 31 popular models of 2016 midsize vehicles. Because of the different customization options you have when selecting a new vehicle, there 82 different headlights possibilities for the 31 vehicles. Some vehicles have many varieties of headlights to choose from while other vehicles can only use a certain type of headlight. It turns out that the 2016 Prius was the only vehicle to get a good grade when it is upgraded to the LED lights. Expensive vehicles normally came with lights that didn’t improve driving function while some of the more affordable makes had the best headlight scores.
