Tip of the week
Modern vehicles contain many self-checking devices and it is often no longer necessary to check that one’s lights and indicators are working properly. The car does it automatically.
However, when you drive a vehicle that is unfamiliar to you, such as a hired car, it is wise to do a thorough check of the lights before driving off – the vehicle may not have a self check system, or previous warnings may have been reset without the problem being attended to.
Brake lights and indicators in particular are important communication devices and their proper operation is critical to continued safety when driving.
