Driving at night in winter

Driving at night in winter

Winter is approaching - are you prepared?

On Sunday night in the UK the clocks went back an hour. This was great for people who were looking for an extra hour's sleep, but it also means that the nights will be much darker much sooner.

There's a greater risk of accidents on the road at night time, plus with the added factor of bad winter weather, driving at night at this time of year can be much more difficult. In these circumstances it's even more important to ensure that your headlight bulbs are working to their best.

When did you last change your headlight bulbs?

If you haven't changed your car bulbs in years then now is the time to do so. Did you know that bulbs wear down over time, just like the tyres and brake pads on your vehicle? Everytime you use your headlight bulbs they become gradually less effective. They may still work, but how much usable light are they delivering on the road?

Replace your bulbs regularly for safer night time driving

If you change your car lights to an upgrade product, such as Philips X-treme Vision +130, you can also benefit from up to 130% more light than a standard bulb. In real terms this means much safer and more comfortable night time driving.
