Car Lights, Wipers and Accessories

Before embarking on your next road trip, it’s essential to check your car and make sure that everything works before you leave. Something as small as a faulty headlight or a worn wiper blade can make driving more difficult and may even result in a fine if you were unfortunate enough to be stopped by police.


The design of many modern cars has come to favour plastic over more durable materials due to its cost-effective production and ultra-light weight. Unfortunately for your headlights, it makes them far more subject to fading and damage. This can leave you with scratched or cloudy car lighting that’s dangerous for you as well as other drivers on the road.

The wiper system prevents excessive accumulation of dirt, water, or snow on the windshield and removes them so that you maintain a clear view of the road ahead.

Make sure that they are working effectively and that they don’t scratch the windscreen when you next put them to use.

Here’s a handy list of things to check before your next trip, to ensure the safety of you and your passengers
  • Direction indicators
  • Coolant and antifreeze levels
  • Rear lights, park and brake lights
  • Headlights (low and high beam)
  • The age and wear of your wiper blades
  • Interior lighting
  • Hazard lights
  • Windshield wiper arm function
  • Fog lights
  • Dashboard lights
  • Reversing lights
