Light up for daytime safety

Owners of older vehicles, not fitted with daytime running lights, are being urged to leave their dipped headlights on during daytime, writes Brian Byrne.

This advice is triggered by Continental Tyres Ireland, noting that the shortest day of the year is approaching on 21 December.

"A lot of newer cars come with day-time running lights as standard," says Tom Dennigan of Continental Tyres Ireland. "This means they have lights on once the engine is running even during daylight time. This is a huge boost to road safety as the old adage for pedestrian safety: 'Be safe, be seen'! is equally true for motorists and other road-users.

"However, there is a significant amount of older vehicles on our roads and many of these cars and vans do not have daytime running lights, so for the drivers of those vehicles our advice is to drive with dipped headlights all day long.  If motorists take this small step of always driving with their lights on, day and night, we believe it would be a great improvement for road safety this Christmas and into the New Year."
