Many people cannot fully grasp the use of car lighting and are unaware that incorrect use of lighting can also be dangerous. It's like driving in the city at night, always encountering someone with high beam lights on. Driving high beam lights in areas without streetlights is not a problem, but the lights remain unchanged when passing or following, which greatly affects the safety of others while driving. Usually, people talk a lot about high beam headlights, and most people also pay more attention to them.

Today, when we talk about the use of dual flashing lights, some people did not use them correctly and did not understand the harm caused by indiscriminate use.

Many people also know that dual flashing lights cannot be turned on randomly, but in reality, this is not the case. A very common phenomenon is that when encountering heavy rain and fog weather, the vast majority of vehicles still turn on the dual flashing lights. Isn't everyone understanding and using the wrong lights? It is not allowed to turn on dual flashing lights in rainy and foggy weather on ordinary roads, just turn on the rear fog lights. The penetrating power of the rear fog lights is very strong. As long as the rear car is driving normally and looking at the road, it can be easily detected. Turning on the rear fog lights can ensure driving safety. One thing to note is that you need to know how to turn on the rear fog lights, as many people don't even know how to do it. All vehicles have rear fog lights, some vehicles have front fog lights, while others do not. The rear fog light is a separate switch, so you can check where it is usually and use it to avoid missing it. The rear fog lights can only be turned on when the small or low beam lights are turned on. It is not possible to turn on the rear fog lights alone.

In normal rainy and foggy weather, dual flashing lights cannot be turned on, but if the rain and fog are very heavy on the highway and the visibility is less than 100 meters, dual flashing lights should be turned on, which is also a regulation of the Traffic Law. In actual driving, you will find that dual flashing lights are more prominent than fog lights. When driving on the highway, a distance of 100 meters is very close, which means you can only drive when the visibility is very low. If the visibility exceeds 100 meters, you cannot drive.

Some people have not figured out the dangers of driving double flashing randomly, while others say it will make the rear car think that your car is broken and stop there, increasing the risk of rear end collision. Actually, it's not the case. Everyone is driving forward with a double flash and moving without any problems. But if there is really a car that is broken down and parked in the middle of the road, and the dual flashing lights are turned on, the rear cars cannot be distinguished, which increases the risk of rear end collision. Driving double flashing randomly increases the risk of rear end collision for a truly broken car, rather than increasing the risk of rear end collision for oneself. When driving on urban roads, try not to use double flashing. Due to the complexity of the road, it is common to change lanes. If you use double flashing, you will no longer be able to turn on the turn signal, and the following vehicle will not know the intention of the preceding vehicle to change lanes. Blindly changing lanes is more likely to cause accidents. When actually driving, if the line of sight is poor, there are many vehicles on the road, and all the surrounding vehicles are flashing, then you can also turn it on. Because if you don't drive, you will be different from others in the traffic flow and appear less obvious. Just like everyone driving with their headlights on at night, there is a car in the middle with no lights on, making it difficult for others to notice.
