Signs of Headlight Wear and Tear
Weather plays a huge factor when determining damage on your headlights. The sun, road grime, rain, snow, and other elements can be harsh on your headlights and can limit the visibility and performance of them as time goes on. The haze on the headlight lens affects the amount of light that is allowed through the lens, which in turn impacts your ability to see your surroundings and oncoming vehicles when driving. If you notice your headlights are dim, have a dull haze, or a yellowish tint, it may be time for you to look into a headlight restoration.
Many people don’t realize the benefits of headlight restoration until it becomes difficult for them to drive in the dark. With cloudy or hazy headlights, it becomes difficult to determine if they are turned on. Hence, it becomes dangerous to drive fast in the dark as the area of visibility is reduced by as much as 70%. That is when we begin to play with the high beams and squint at the roadway stressing our eyesight to be able to see the road in front of us clearly. With headlight restoration, you will be able to see the road clearly and you won’t have to worry about going fast in the dark.
