Do you feel excited to take your car on the road? But confused when to use which light? Although it seems easy, the lack of awareness and other irresponsible users on the road make other drivers feel nervous about using car lights on a course in response to different road situations. 

Car lights have various functions. Either it helps the driver in driving or make other road users aware of your presence. When used properly, you can avoid road hazards smoothly. So, in this content, get a brief discourse on how you can use car lights efficiently: 

  • Headlight: 2 types of headlights are there- one is low beam, and another one is high beam. These lights will let you see the road in front of you in the dark, and it also acts as signalling the other motorists about your presence. On the other hand, low beams provide a proper distribution of light with adequate forward and lateral illumination. Hence, it doesn’t create blindness to other road users. The high beams offer centre-weighted distribution with intense illumination. Since there would be no control of glare in high-beam headlights, it should be used only when there is no oncoming car.


  • Tail lights:Tail lights illuminate the red light at the rear part of your vehicle. The mechanism works in such a way that they will light up whenever you turn on your headlights. Drivers who will be travelling behind you can easily recognise how much ahead you are from them.


  • Daytime Running Lights: These lights are located at both the front and rear part of your car. It is turned on automatically when you start your vehicles to make yourself visible to other drivers across the road.

Never use this light as a stop signal or to achieve the parking permit.


  • Driving Lamps: These lights are located inside the vehicle and used to light up the interior to locate the map or take rent from passengers or to locate items. They shouldn’t be used while driving, as it may create distraction to the driver.
