HELLA LED Safety DayLights™

Be Safe, Be Seen

Failure to see another road user in time (or at all) is a contributing factor in over
50% of all daytime accidents. For daytime intersection accidents this increases
to as much as 80%.

Why Install HELLA Safety DayLights™?

Using your Dipped Beam Headlamps during daylight hours has only a marginal added safety effectYou might ask yourself “can’t I just switch on my headlamps?”, since the use of dipped beam headlamps during daylight hours has long been promoted as a Road Safety Initiative around the country.

Dipped beam headlamps are designed to effectively light up the road in front of the vehicle during darkness, whilst causing as little glare as possible to oncoming traffic.

Hence during daytime, dipped beam headlamps ‘waste’ most of their light directed to the road in front of the vehicle but provide very little as a signal to other road users in bright daylight. Using your Dipped Beam Headlamps during daylight hours has only a marginal added safety effect.

Safety DayLights™ on the other hand are designed to significantly enhance the conspicuity of your vehicle during daylight hours because precision optics direct all the light towards the other
road users.


HELLA LED Safety DayLights™
Safety DayLights™ are forward facing signal lamps that significantly enhance the visibility of your vehicle during daylight hours to prevent vehicle crashes by ‘accidental oversight’.

As road users we have all experienced the ‘fright second’ of a near miss by being overlooked by another car, van or truck.

Equally frightening is almost not noticing another vehicle approaching due to an inconspicuous vehicle colour, the low sun casting harsh shadows or sun strike.

Any single one of these ‘fright seconds’ has the potential to end in a tragic outcome and become a number in the road toll statistics.

Safety DayLights™ are a “never forget” safety enhancement. They automatically switch ON when the ignition is switched ON and automatically switch OFF when the headlamps are turned ON in order not to dazzle other road users at night.
