First I'd like to ask you a few questions.
We do things every day without really thinking about the real reason as to why we are doing them. Little (no brainer) things like looking and slowing before we cross an intersection, and letting off the accelerator when we see a potential hazard.
These are just a couple of examples of our automatic reactions; as with the 4 questions above, they are all for our own safety. So what about restoring their headlights?
What I don't understand is why people think it is safe to drive with clouded headlights? Or do they even think about it at all? And if not; Why not?
I mean do people really believe that the light projecting through that dirty lens is the same as if it was a new clear headlight lens?
I just don't know??
I do know that restoring your headlights is well worth the cost compared to the cost of vehicle damage or injury!
What ever the case; here's something to consider about headlights, safety and FL. State Laws.
Florida State Law Requirements for line of site on automotive headlights:
Florida Statutes 316.237 Multiple-beam road-lighting equipment.
Now, most Florida Law Enforcement Officers will not pull you over, or give you a ticket for oxidized or clouded headlights; However if you are ever involved in a (vehicle to vehicle) or (vehicle to pedestrian) accident, That may seemingly not be your fault; You could still be charged for that accident, and or be sued by the other party involved on the grounds of knowingly opperating a motor vehicle with impaired or distorted headlights.
Remember: “Ignorance is no excuse for the Law” to an Officer's eyes as well as the courts!
