The high beam lights are helpful to being able to see in a wider range to the sides and in front while driving at night or in adverse driving conditions. They help to illuminate the road and the sides of the road, making it possible for you to see what may be in front or to the side in front of you, even when there are no street lights present. The only time you need to dim the high beam lights is if a vehicle in coming at your down the other lane or in front of you. The reason being the high beam lights are extremely bright and can blind the other driver. Have you ever noticed how bright high beam lights are on other vehicles? It is also preferable to avoid unnecessary use of high beams in built up residential areas as a courtesy to households.
For this reason, you need to make sure you are able to dim your lights properly when you see another vehicle coming at you. If you have an issue that you cannot either dim or make them brighter you need to see an auto electrician to fix the issue. The people at ACE Mechanics have qualified auto electricians available to help you with services and repairs when needed. Even if the issue is mechanical, ACE provides qualified auto mechanics as well. The electricians and mechanics work together in repairing and servicing vehicles in the Melbourne area.
Basically you need to make sure your high beams point in the right direction and are aligned properly. Do not shine them into a vehicle driving in front of you or towards you, because the light will blind them from their rear view and side mirrors or directly in front. When the high beams are off the low beams are pointed more downward to avoid shining in other driver’s eyes. If you are driving for long distances without the high beams on, be aware that you will have trouble seeing a person wearing dark clothing on the side of the road. It helps just to be more alert and watching in front and to the sides, keeping your eyes on the road always.
If you have issues with your high beams pointing too high or too far out, you can have the auto electricians at ACE Mechanics to redirect the lights. They help to replace burnt out bulbs, and help to make sure they are working right. In addition to high beams, ACE can help with all the automotive lighting issues such as your back lights, driving lights, fog lights, spot lights, signal lights, brake lights, and any lighting issues within the dashboard too.
