What are DRLs?

Daytime Running Lights (DRL) have been installed on cars for many years now. This makes it much easier to see an oncoming vehicle than one without DRL’s.

How often do you notice a vehicle traveling at dusk or in the dark without tail lights?

Did you know?

Most often the driver is unaware they cannot be easily seen from behind or the side. Inside the vehicle the dash is lit up, they can see where they are going and they assume the tail lights are on. As drivers, we need to be aware of the exterior lighting on our vehicles.

If your vehicle has an "AUTO" setting for your headlights it is best to use that setting, all exterior lighting will come on at dusk, off at dawn and others will be able to see you. If you don’t have an “AUTO” setting you must turn the lights on and off yourself.

Another thing to remember is to turn your lights on anytime we have inclement weather, as the “AUTO” setting may not sense that the lights need to be turned on.
