Tesla has enhanced the security of their cars just by changing the lights

Car Manufacturers are trying to achieve maximum safety of its equipment. To do this, they equip their protective systems, automatic piloting, durable bodies and do achieve good results. In September, Tesla Model 3 electric cars have proven their safety but as you know perfection has no limit. As it turned out, in order to increase the level of security she needed only to change the lights.

The Assessment of the reliability of transport is engaged in the insurance Institute for highway safety IIHS. In 2016, he began to pay attention to even the headlights, as the statistics showed that half of all fatal accidents in the US occurred at night or on badly lit roads.

The Institute for several years trying to convey to the producers that it is not enough to equip a vivid and accurate lamp — it is important to configure them correctly. When checking the headlights, the experts encourage the technology of automatic main beam and change the angle.

Headlights play an important role in the prevention of nighttime accidents but they don't all work the same. There are differences in the types of lamps, lighting technologies, directions and amount of light.

The Tesla Model 3 could not get a maximum grade of security because of the headlights — the Institute has always given them an average score. In particular, the problem lies in the uneven road lighting — if the lighting on the left side was good, the right part always remained in the dark.

Tesla has finally listened to the advice of the Institute and updated headlights. Excellent visibility on both sides of the road received copies, released after July 2018. Owners of older models, unfortunately, will continue to be satisfied with uneven lighting.

With all this, the Institute believes that Tesla can make the lights even better. For example, a company may adapt them to ride on winding roads, where the lighting again becomes unbalanced.
