Keep Your Headlights On All The Time

Have you ever noticed that UPS trucks always have their headlights on when they travel? The same goes for school buses.

Most motorcycles are equipped to be on anytime the engine is running. Statistics prove that “daytime running lights” help make you more visible to everyone.

Even if the sun is setting in the eyes of a westbound sunset traveler, he will see your headlights coming eastbound. If the westbound vehicle is going to make a left hand turn into your path, having your headlights on just might save you. Just remember to turn them off when you get out of the vehicle, although many vehicles beep reminders. A door chime should alert you if you exit the vehicle while the lights are still on.
