Use headlights while driving in inclement weather!

During these periods of heavy snowfall, HDPS reminds motorists to drive with headlights on for better visibility to other drivers and pedestrians.

The Michigan State Police offer the following for safe driving:


Headlights aren't just for nighttime use and use during inclement weather. By driving with your headlights on at all times, even on bright sunny days, recent statistics show that you reduce the likelihood of being involved in a collision by as much as 32%. Turning on your headlights lets the other driver see you first; because the human eye is light-seeking, drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists will see an oncoming car sooner and be less likely to pull into its path.

Michigan State Police Troopers urge you to give yourself every advantage you can. If your vehicle does not have daytime running lights, upgrade kits are available for many makes and models, or simply turn on your headlights!

State Police remind you to "Don't Wreck Your Life!" Drive with your headlights on at all times, keep your eyes on the road, never drink and drive, and always wear your safety belt.
