As the temperatures gradually drop, winter is on its way. While the winter scenery can be charming, it also brings challenges and risks on the roads. Whether you're a daily commuter or planning a long-distance trip, the harsh winter weather and adverse road conditions can pose a threat to driving safety.
In this blog post, we will provide winter driving tips focusing on the installation of the right driving lights, covering key information on improving vehicle visibility and what kind of lights to install. Whether you're a novice driver or an experienced one, these suggestions will help ensure your safety during winter driving.
Let's explore how to stay safe on the roads during the cold season. Keep reading for valuable driving advice. Here are some COLIGHT automotive safety equipment tips to help you drive more safely in harsh winter weather.
During the winter season, apart from rain and snow, fog is also a common phenomenon. In winter, dense fog can persist for days, especially in coastal areas. Taking the United States as an example, western regions like California's Central Valley, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Oregon's Willamette Valley, as well as certain areas along the eastern North Atlantic coast, such as Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts, often experience varying degrees of dense fog. Fog reduces visibility and increases driving risks, making fog lights an essential addition to your vehicle.
Fog lights emit a wide and low beam of light, typically positioned lower on the front of the vehicle with the beam directed downward to reduce glare. They emit a bright beam of light that can penetrate fog, snow, or mist, providing improved road illumination in low visibility conditions.
For instance, COLIGHT 4inch Rob2 Pro Series is well-suited for use as fog lights, recommended to use the Flood/Diffused yellow beam, and can be installed on the bumper to achieve a broad yellow light, enhancing visibility. Additionally, adding Rob2 Pro Series lights at the rear of your vehicle can help other drivers easily identify your vehicle and reduce the risk of rear-end collisions. If you prefer white light after the winter season, you can replace the lenses to obtain the white beam.
In summary, fog lights are essential safety equipment for vehicles in adverse weather and low visibility conditions. They provide improved road illumination, reduce accident risks, and enhance driving safety.
If you're looking for a light bar suitable for use in winter rain, fog, and snow conditions, then COLIGHT B10 Series light bar is the perfect choice. It offers both yellow and white beam options, with its amber lens providing a soft, glare-reducing illumination. It incorporates a combination of spotlight and floodlight optical technology, minimizing hood glare and preventing significant eye fatigue or ghosting when light is reflected by other vehicles in a convoy.
B10 Series light bar features side vents and custom-molded silicone sealing, ensuring a waterproof housing with an IP68 rating that can withstand temperatures as low as -40°C. This guarantees that moisture won't enter the housing, preventing lens leakage or fogging. This is a critical consideration, especially for those residing in regions prone to rain, freezing, or snowfall.
Offroad driving lights are essential for winter conditions, and you can install them on the front bumper of your vehicle to achieve powerful light output.
COLIGHT 4.5 Inch Cube4 Series features custom reflectors and high-power chips, providing a focused spotlight output similar to a laser beam. This is ideal for straight rural roads and high-speed off-road vehicles. The light comes in an ultra-high-quality cast alloy housing with passive cooling fins, ensuring a long lifespan. The premium Lexan lens is resistant to scratching, wear, and fading. Supported by pressure equalization vents, it helps prevent water ingress, dust, and contaminants. With an IP68 waterproof rating, it effectively resists dust and water, making it suitable for various harsh weather conditions.
There are two light color options available – white and yellow. If you're driving in winter, choosing the yellow lens will produce a powerful yellow beam that helps you see the road ahead in rainy or snowy weather. If you prefer white beam, you can also achieve a combination of white and yellow light by installing the yellow covers.
