If you are driving at night, when should you use your high beam headlights?

Correct answer

  • When you are within a one-block distance of an oncoming vehicle
  • When you are following another vehicle and are in heavy traffic
  • When there are no oncoming vehicles approaching


Use high beams on open roads, which are unlit by streetlights, in order to see persons or vehicles ahead. You must change to low beams at least 500 feet before meeting oncoming vehicles. You must also change to low beam lights when following a vehicle at a distance of 300 feet or less.
