Australian Road Rules: Additional LED Lighting in Vehicles


Driving with additional LED lighting can be very helpful to drivers when driving off road, most especially when driving during harsh weather conditions. It provides additional safety to the driver and its passengers, the goods in transit, and as well as the vehicle itself. However, there are also some instances where additional LED lighting, when overdone, can also cause harm, not only for itself but also for the other drivers. 

 

Because of the potential harm brought about by abusing the use of driving lights, there are road transport regulations set by different states to ensure safety to all motorists.
