A car has many different types of lighting. This car lighting ensures that you can see
everything well, but also that you are clearly visible to other road users. In
addition, there are other types of lighting that can show road users what you
are going to do. For example, the third brake light shows that you are going to
brake and you can indicate which direction you are going with the indicators.
If the lighting of your car has broken, this can cause dangerous situations.
Not only will your vision be reduced, but you will also be less visible to
other road users. Therefore, be sure to check your car's lighting regularly and
replace it if necessary. Below we will further explain the different types of
car lighting for you.
What types of car lighting are there?
You probably know that having good
automotive lighting is mandatory and that its functioning is also very
important. But what exactly are the different types of lighting for?
headlight of the car contains both low beam, high beam and side light. This lighting
is always implemented together with the rear lights and the
number plate lighting. During the day it is not mandatory to leave the car lights on.
However, it is of course safer to also turn on the car lights during the day.
Most modern cars are therefore equipped with
daytime running lights. Daytime
running lights often consist of a strip of LED lights. The LED lights are more
economical than the normal low beam and ensure that you are clearly visible
during the day.
know that you can also adjust the headlights yourself? Most cars are equipped
headlight levelling motors. This allows you to easily control the
headlights in the dashboard. For example, are you going out heavily loaded?
Then the car will hang in its butt and you can dazzle other road users because
the lamps shine more upwards. The headlight levelling motors allow you to make
the headlights shine more downwards.
indicators are also called the turn signals. With these lights you can indicate which
direction you are going. These lights can be operated with the levers on the
steering wheel. Nowadays we often see that the turn signals are no longer only
in the headlights and taillights, but also in, for example, the housing of the
fog lights provide very bright light, which is very useful to be able to shine through
thick fog banks. For this reason, the fog lights should not be used in other
situations. You could dazzle other road users with this. In general, you will
not use the fog lamps very often. However, it is also important for this
lighting to be checked regularly. Then you can be sure that they work well when
you do need them.
lights are often incorporated into the
tail lights of the car. However, it is
not always clearly visible whether a car is braking, or whether the taillights
simply come on. The
third brake lights have therefore been created to make
braking extra visible. These third brake lights are often mounted in or above
the rear window. This makes it clearly visible to road users behind you that
you are braking. Buy car lighting
