The Importance of Brake Lights

While you may not realize it, brake lights are one of the most important safety features on your vehicle. They let people behind you know when you are slowing down, effectively preventing accidents before they happen. But brake lights have to be functioning in order to prevent these accidents. They are so important to road safety that having non-functioning brake lights can get you a ticket from a police officer.

If you’ve been in an accident caused by someone else’s non-functioning brake lights, you should not be held responsible. Contact the Wisconsin car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, by calling 800-242-2874 today.

Brake Light Failure

Brake light failure is a serious issue, and can occur in a number of ways. Some of the most common include:

  • Broken bulbs: this is one of the most common causes of brake light failure. Bulbs can break in a number of ways. A collision can cause the bulb to break, or it can break because of wear.
  • Loose bulbs: a loose bulb can stop functioning. This can easily be fixed by screwing the bulb back in.
  • Bad connection: if the connection between the brakes and the lights isn’t functioning, the brake lights – though functional themselves – won’t light up. Unlike the previous two problems, this one is best handled by a professional mechanic.
