Shine brightly like a diamond

It’s getting dark early and winter months are coming in, it’s important to make sure that you are visible to other road users and you too can see clearly. With lights not working it’s a criminal offence, MOT failure and you are a hazard to other road users and pedestrians. Here are some checks and driving tips to ensure you are safe in all types
of dark winter weather conditions.

Make sure …

  • Your headlights are clean: better visibility
  • Your headlights’ condition is clean: not full of condensation or cloudy lenses
  • Get someone to help you check your lights: good practice
  • The bulbs are fitted correctly: dazzles other road users
  • Always switch fog lights off when visibility is clear: dazzles drivers facing you and
    road users behind you may think you are braking
  • Number plate bulbs are working: you could get fined for illegibility
  • Indicator bulbs are flashing yellow not white: be clear to road users
  • Hazards are working: in case you breakdown

Be Safe, Be Seen, Have a winter check…
