Vehicle Lights and Their Importance on the Road

A traffic jam at a highwayA lot can happen on the road. A simple punctured tire can cause a significant amount of traffic during rush hours, so as a minor car crash and slow-moving vehicles. But one of the main causes of traffic or uneasy driving is the presence of huge vehicles, especially in highways. Trailer trucks that span a couple of feet longer than usual cars, as well as vehicles towing other vehicles, often pose a certain risk on the road, especially when their lights are not working.

In short, taillights might be a small part of a vehicle, but it plays a very important role for you and the public’s safety.

How important is a tail light?

The role of vehicle lighting is to provide safety and be used as a means to communicate. Unfortunately, some motorists take this for granted, which leads to avoidable accidents. This is the reason wireless trailer light systems were invented. With such mechanism, there is no excuse not to use the lights properly.

How does a wireless trailer light work?

When towing a vehicle, two separate taillights with different controls are in play. To solve this problem, wireless transmitters attached to the main vehicle, and a receiver attached to the towed vehicle is used.

When the towing vehicle turns its lights on (i.e., signal lights, brake lights, taillights, etc.) a signal will be transmitted to the receiver, and the attached LED lighting will do the same. Most wireless trailer lights are detachable and can be attached to different towed vehicles for more convenience. This makes it easier and safer for both the tow truck and the cars following it when it comes to traffic.

As mentioned, the role of vehicle lights is to promote safety and be able to communicate efficiently on the road. Do not take such things for granted. Your life and the lives of others are at stake. Use your lights properly; they are there for a reason.
