Vehicle Signal Lights, How To Drive A Car To Communicate Between Road Users

Proficient driving is not only a matter of how to drive a good car, but also how you are able to use various signal lights correctly so that you can communicate smoothly with fellow road users. In order not to be misguided and to drive smoothly, consider the functions and meanings of the following car signal lights, come on!

Near lamp (low beam)

Its main function is to illuminate the road so it must be lit at night, when passing through tunnels, and into underground parking so other motorists know your whereabouts. During the day, the main lights are also turned on by the drivers who are members of the convoy. The goal is to make it easier for the road captain to monitor the group and notify other road users.

High beam (high beam)

Turn on the headlights when driving on a quiet and poorly lit road. You can also get attention from other motorists by “blinking” the headlights (dim) so that it is a sign that your car wants to get priority.

Turn signal

The blinking of the turn signal is a signal that your car wants to turn right, left, or change lanes. Just make sure you turn on the turn signal in the direction of the turn. In addition, you can also use the right turn signal if you want to overtake the car in front of you.

Brake Light

Turns on just as you press the brake pedal so the vehicle behind you can slow down and keep your distance.

Reverse Light

Shift your car into reverse gear and the reverse light will turn on automatically. This is a way of informing the driver behind that you want to reverse the car.

Hazard lights

Press the button with the triangle symbol, then the right and left turn signal lights of your car will light up and flash simultaneously. Hazard lights are used when your car stops due to a disturbance or is in an emergency condition on the side of the road.

In addition to car lights, you can also communicate with other drivers using the horn. Make sure you use both wisely and according to their function so that they are not misinterpreted by other drivers. Happy driving!
