headlights.jpgThe RAA is urging drivers to switch on and use effective lighting when driving across SA.
A total of 6,364 people were detected last year, with the most common offence (55%), driving without effective lights and 34%, using a fog light when not permitted.
RAA Senior manager for Road Safety Charles Mountain, says driving without effective lights applies to people who both forget to turn their lights on at night, in hazardous weather and those who may a single bulb out.
There is also an alarmingly high number of motorists, (27%) who use their high beam headlights in foggy conditions, instead of correctly switching to fog light-making it more difficult to see and more dangerous to drive.
The penalty for driving at night without lights or using fog lights when not permitted is $238, plus a $60 Victims of Crime Levy.
