Nothing is ever clear, but your safety on the road is!
Days go on by with our busy lives and we eventually start to notice our lights getting dimmer and dimmer. You take a look at your car and you realize! “Oh No! My headlights are cloudy!”. Driving with cloudy headlights is an extreme risk that can endanger not only your pocket to pay fines, but as well as your life.
According to USA Today, approximately 2,500 people are tragically killed each year at night when crossing a road. These tragic events are usually associated with poor visibility caused by cloudy or hazy headlights. While some states might classify these accidents as a felony, it is, therefore, your responsibility as a driver to keep your headlights up to standard to avoid being liable in an accident. https://headlightrestore.us/how-dangerous-is-driving-with-cloudy-headlights/
What Causes Foggy Head lights?
Most headlight lenses these days are made from a thick plastic comprised of polycarbonates. Unlike the glass lenses that were used in older cars, these plastic lenses are much more scratch-resistant and durable. However, over time, as this polycarbonate plastic is exposed to UV rays from the sun, the outer layers begin to break down and degrade. These changes cause the lenses to absorb blue light from the bulbs and cause a less potent, yellowish light to be emitted. https://www.bridgestonetire.com/tread-and-trend/drivers-ed/how-to-clean-foggy-headlights#
