Eight percent of car headlights are not set correctly
Sunday, 29 October 2017
One in twelve cars on the road does not have its headlights set correctly, according to the VAB. This could be discovered after a crash or after one of the little bump vehicles usually get when being driven around.
With the cold season coming up and the clocks going back, visibility for road users will become even more important. An investigation has shown that pedestrians and cyclists are particularly vulnerable this time of year. It therefore vital to make yourself visible, says the VAB.
Badly set headlights can also blind other motorists, as well as lead to a car failing its MOT.
