Is there such thing as rear view headlights?

Recommended Posts

so I don't know if this is a stupid question but if i turn my headlights on there should be headlights on the rear that come on as well and stay on permanently not fog lights, or reversing just regular lights that stay on so i can see where i'm reversing in the dark right?

 

Because if there is then there not coming on?

Err...reverse lights come on when you're in reverse so you can see...  They go off when not in reverse otherwise they'd blind everyone behind you.

Probably best you don't drive until you've sobered up! :laugh:

As an aside- it is a traffic offence to have permanent white lights showing on the back of a vehicle except for numberplate lights (which are angled downwards to purely illuninate the plate).

My other vehicle is a JCB 😂 

Cree LED reverse bulbs are a good upgrade; 

I've fitted two in my modified mk2.5 focus has dual reverse lights both Equivalent to 55w Halogen total 110w light output

It is also illegal to drive an agricultural/industrial machine on the highway with the rear cab/floodlights on as well but how many have you followed that do?

One thing I can't understand is why do drivers have their front fog lights on during daylight when there is no fog?

If reversing lamps are retro fitted to a vehicle and are not activated/deactivated by an automatic switch from the gearbox, by Law you have to fit an illuminated manual switch.

It was a good day when fitting underbody lighting on a vehicle was made illegal.

There are many more ways you can draw attention to yourself and your vehicle!

He did indeed

White light is the name of the song 🤷‍♂️ which I think is quite a good one; I don't get your point of repeating my post to be fair; Perhaps elaborate rather than saying what you see as however purposeful my initial comment was mate; I cant see any purpose in yours atall as everyone can already see what I've said without introduction or synopsis 

#RoyWalker say what you see

It's just reminding me of White Lightning...  Can you even still buy that?  Used to sell loads of it when I worked Monday evening shift at a small supermarket!! Surprised it didn't burn through the plastic bottles in all honesty! :laugh:

At the end of 2009, Heineken decided to discontinue its manufacture due to its brand image problem in the United Kingdom as having become synonymous with under-age drinking, anti-social behaviour, homelessness and impoverished alcoholism, in an echo of the Gin Craze of the 18th century.[3] Such cheap non-distilled drinks (both high-strength beer and cider) became known as "***** juice" in the UK media. When sold on special at off licences, 3 litre plastic bottles of 8.4% White Lightning could be purchased for less than £2.
