In many parts of the world you have seasons with short days and long nights, long periods of darkness. Autumn and winter in Europe is just one of many examples.
Darkness and light are natural aspects for every motorist, too. There are some major points, which are very relevant – for you and others, for your safety and the safety of others. On one hand basics, which are given and on the other hand those, which you can influence.
Your car is equipped with a certain type of headlights. Halogen light or xenon light or LED lights - to name the most common. There are big differences, although every one has the fundamental function, to help you finding your way through the darkness. The only possibility to make an impact is on the day, when you buy the car (see blogpost 57), be it a used or a new one.
But there are a few things, which you can influence personally – with a big effect! A correct setting of the headlights, done by your favourite garage. Frequent checks of the function of all four lights (see picture gallery) - and important, important, important: clean them often! Dirty headlights are worth less than half, even when your car is equipped with the latest and best version of light technology! Simple and easy – but it must be made regularly, for example by yourself.
Generally, the right light at the right place at the right time is also very helpful for everyday life. You find this in the Holy Bible, too - amongst many other subjects. These guidelines accompany The Castiron, ideally day by day. Just with light you do not walk in the dark – the same with driving!
For those, who want to read more: The Castiron invites you to read in the Holy Bible, Psalm 119, verse 105 (see recommendation).
See you next Friday. - God bless you, all the best! The Castiron
