The Benefits of LED Lights
LEDs have gained in popularity since the 1980s and are today one of the most attractive types of lighting equipment for commercial and passenger vehicles. There are several reasons why truckers should consider installing LED lights on their trucks. For one, they are highly visible. With a side-to-side view, truckers will not have a problem seeing running wildlife, signage, or instabilities in roadways and other drivers will not have issues seeing trucks in passing lanes. They are also long-lasting – 50 times longer than traditional halogen lightbulbs reported by Extra Mile International Inc.
Because of their growing popularity, manufacturers have designed different types of LED lights for trucks including plastic, aluminum, and steel – but which type is the right choose for semi-truck drivers? Here’s what drivers should know.
