Dear fellow drivers,

As our vehicles age, due to high COE + due to 40% DP required + etc, please ensure that your tail lights and at least 2 of your your brake lights are working!

Just these few days alone, I have come across more than 10 cars with 2 or ALL brake lights not working. I have already tried my best to inform these drivers when we stopped along side at junctions. But there is only so much I can do.

Please, check your brake lights.

This is how you can check your tail lights and brake lights by yourself if you have no one else to check for you.

1) When reverse-parked in front of a wall, off your lights and observe the wall behind. Switch on your headlights and check your side mirrors. The 2 corners of your car rear should have red light casted on the wall. To check your brake lights, switch off your headlights. Step on the brake and check the side mirrors to see there is red light casted on the wall.

2) When stopped in front of buses (and some big lorries/truck), check your rearview mirror and look at the reflection of your car rear on the windscreen of the bus behind. You can see if your brake lights are working.

Please ensure your tail lights and brake lights are working.

This is for your safety and for others safety as well!

I think many are just blur.

I have 1 neighbour (lady) who has all 3 brake lights not working. But she got it changed promptly after I left a note on her windscreen to inform her. sleep.gif

Actually this issue is getting worst, I observe more and more cars doesn't have any brake light working at all. Anyway instead of asking them to change, I just keep a good distant from the car in front all the time.

3) Please ensure you TURN ON your FULL headlights (not just small light) at night. This is for us to see you not for you to light up the road ahead (SG roads are mostly bright enough).

4) Check that your headlights are not blinding the drivers in front of you! As a rough gauge, if your headlights light up the cabin of the car 3-4 car lengths in front, you need to adjust your headlights.

5) NEVER turn on your rear fog lamps unless really bad weather (eg. heavy rain or fog). It is VERY DISTRACTING and HURTING to our eyes! I'm gonna report you to LTA if you do this in front of me (dun say never warn).

Yes, I also keep a good distance until there's a chance to stop alongside, then I'll tell them their brakelights are not working.

So far, all those informed seemed grateful to know. wink.gif

Is this the "follow me home" light you are referring to? It will turn off after 1 or 2 minutes later.

I don't think he mean that, it's the inner light which is quite dim and only on 1 side of the E Class.
