A superior view is one of the most important criteria for driving safety. Visibility is vital for safety, especially when driving at night. Reminding that drivers should be careful against poor quality, short-lived, fake headlights, OSRAM reminds that fake headlights can cause vision problems and even accidents.
OSRAM, one of the world's leading technology companies, mentions the effects of headlights on driving safety and warns drivers to be careful about fake headlights. Can Driver, OSRAM Turkey Automotive Sales Manager, states that fake headlight lamps can create a great risk for drivers, vehicles and pedestrians in traffic.
More costly over its lifetime
Stating that fake or non-E-certified lamps with unbalanced light, different colors and inconsistent brightness can cause temporary blindness risk for drivers and pedestrians in traffic, Can Driver said, “Using non-original headlights is putting both your own life and the lives of other drivers and pedestrians in traffic in danger. Headlight lamps that do not meet the standards in production and that have not undergone quality and safety tests can also cause a short circuit in the vehicle, causing the breakdown of many systems of the vehicle and even the burning of the vehicle. Fake headlight lamps, which offer a very short lifetime compared to the original, are more expensive than the original during their lifetime with constantly renewed purchase costs. It is expensive, and it also brings with it the security risks it creates in traffic.” said.
Broken headlights lead to traffic tickets
Stating that the headlights are an important safety criterion in traffic and that the law enforcement does not compromise on this issue, Can Driver said, “The headlight adjustments are checked during the compulsory inspections of the vehicles, and the vehicles that cannot pass this control cannot get on the road. In addition, headlight lamps that suddenly break down in traffic cause you to get traffic tickets. All these penalties can be eliminated by using the original headlight lamp, traffic and life safety can be ensured. As OSRAM, we offer a guarantee of up to 10 years on our products, depending on the model and usage habits. After dozens of safety and compliance tests, we put it on sale.
