October is headlight safety month and with that comes the idea that parents should add just one more thing to their plate this time of year; headlight checks and cleanings! The one thing that constantly bothers me during the Fall and Winter months in New Hampshire would be the fact that my headlights always seem to be more dim, due to lack of cleaning. I honestly do not clean my headlights, I am good about checking fluids in the car and ensuring that is up to par but headlights? I barely think about them until I notice they appear rather dim when driving after dark. I only drive after dark during Fall and Winter because of daylight savings time. Fall brings on Halloween, which means little ones will be out and about trick or treating and you need to ensure that your headlights are clean for maximum night time visibility.
Pep Boys stores offers a kit that makes cleaning headlights easier for Moms, the 3M Headlight Restoration Kit. This kit is great for someone like me who isn’t too up to par on headlight restoration beyond using a rag to attempt to wipe the headlights clean. I am a single mom of three so that means the vehicle work is up to me, having a choice to make headlight restoration easier certainly makes me smile.
This easy 3 step process using the headlight restoration kit will leave your headlights looking brighter and you being safe on the road during these holiday months while the nights come earlier and the days are shorter. Everyone needs to learn to put headlight cleaning on their list of to do with cars, because it seems I was taught more about keeping fluids up to par than the importance of being able to see with clean headlights.
Just seeing the before and after photo above, tells me that I may have to go to Pep Boys online to find the local store and start putting some arm muscles into cleaning my headlights so I can see during sports nights, trick or treating and holiday traveling this year. Pleas spread the word about how important headlight safety is to you as a driver and all pedestrians as well as oncoming traffic.
