Many people overlook the benefits of investing in high-quality lights when upgrading their vehicles. While it's always good to improve performance with features like aftermarket exhausts and cold air intakes, it's also worthwhile to upgrade a vehicle's lighting, which also can improve its appearance and safety. A good vehicle lighting company can install a variety of lighting enhancements that have a very real effect on your driving. Here's a closer look at lighting upgrades for your vehicle.
LED Headlights Improve Visibility
LED headlights are brighter and longer lasting than incandescent lights, and they do a much better job of lighting your way when you're driving at night. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, LED bulbs are measured in their own unit called lumens because their energy usage is so uniquely efficient. Six to eight watts of brightness on an LED bulb is equal to about 40 watts on an incandescent bulb. A vehicle lighting company will have many types of LED headlights.
Fog Lights Cut Through the Fog
Driving in the fog can be extremely dangerous when visibility is nearly zero. Using your headlights often worsens the problem by causing light to reflect off of the fog and making it even harder for you to see. Mounting a pair of fog lights can make a big difference by enabling you to see the road better. Fog lights are mounted very low on the front end, which stops them from reflecting back into your eyes while illuminating the roadway better.
LED Turn Signals Get Noticed More
Turn signals are very important for letting other motorists know what you are about to do. When your turn signals are flashing on one side or the other, they know to be ready to slow down and give you room to make your turn. Replacing the stock turn signal bulbs with LED bulbs will help to make your signals brighter and easier for other drivers to see.
Flashing Brake Lights Prevent Rear-End Collisions
A vehicle lighting company can install a rapid flasher that causes your brake lights to flash a few times before staying on while you slow to a stop. These flashers make your brake light more visible, which makes your vehicle easier to see from the rear. You get the attention of other drivers and greatly reduce the potential of getting rear-ended.
