When you’re taking your jeep or four-wheel drive vehicle into the wild outdoors, you know that you won’t be seeing any streetlamps every 50 feet. Some people might find it exciting to drive blind, but for your safety and your car’s it is best to have a pair of strong driving lights to show the way in the wilderness.

Why driving lights, and not just the normal headlights of an average car?  Driving lights are much stronger than headlights. Check out the specifications on the world’s most popular driving light, the Hella 500 Black Magic. Powered by 12 volt halogen bulb, the Black Magic can illuminate a wide swath of the landscape, more than your ordinary headlights.

Installed properly and in combination with high beam head lights, driving lights can light up to 200 meters in front of a vehicle. This gives the driver a wider latitude of view—and distance—so that obstacles are discerned from far away. Additionally, the tougher off-road lights can withstand the shocks delivered when traveling off the paved roads. For anyone who dares an adventure in the great outdoors—and in the dark—don’t gamble and install the best driving lights you can get for maximum driving safety.

No matter how bright and clear your 4×4 headlights are, they sometimes just don’t cut it when you’re driving off the beaten track after sunset. Even top-spec vehicles can be enhanced when it comes to lighting, and it’s good to find out that there are quality driving lights around that allow you to see your way more clearly at night.

You can benefit from reliable off-road lights to increase your field of vision, especially when the weather’s not cooperating or you’ve decided to embark on a nocturnal adventure. Off-road lights are particularly intended to illuminate the terrain or path during instances of thick fog or heavy rain, and to aid drivers with search and rescue, among others. Some off-roaders believe that, besides being a useful add-on, such lights add more aesthetic appeal to 4x4s. (more…)

While most people have no trouble driving at night, many still prefer driving during the daytime. The biggest reason for this is that when night falls, the darkness limits road visibility, which makes drivers more prone to accidents.
