In good driving conditions, Headlamps in the average car enable the driver to see for about 100 meters on an unlit road. Using Dipped headlamps in good conditions enables the driver to see for about 30 meters. Ensure Headlamps are adjusted correctly. All lamps, reflectors, indicators and number plate lights MUST be kept clear and in good working order.
