National Headlamp Month, End Of Daylight Saving Time Underscore Importance Of Ensuring A Safe View Of The Road

Maintaining a clear view of the road is important to safe driving no matter what the season, but fall brings added attention to driving visibility thanks to October's status as National Headlamp Month and the end of Daylight Saving Time on November 3. Federal-Mogul's Wagner Lighting brand reminds consumers that driving without properly functioning headlamps can be extremely dangerous, and that several innovative, technologically advanced replacement headlamp technologies can help significantly enhance forward visibility.

Maintaining a clear view of the road is important to safe driving no matter what the season, but fall brings added attention to driving visibility thanks to October’s status as National Headlamp Month and the end of Daylight Saving Time on November 3. Federal-Mogul’s Wagner Lighting brand reminds consumers that driving without properly functioning headlamps can be extremely dangerous, and that several innovative, technologically advanced replacement headlamp technologies can help significantly enhance forward visibility.

“Many drivers are surprised at how much their driving visibility can improve after upgrading to a premium headlamp design,” said Michael McKee, global product director, visibility, Federal-Mogul Vehicle Components segment. “There are several recent headlamp innovations that can provide a much deeper and clearer field of vision, which can not only keep you safe but also give you added confidence and comfort behind the wheel.”

The Wagner Lighting brand offers a comprehensive line of quality lighting products for any automotive replacement need. These include three enhanced, premium headlamp upgrades – Wagner NightDefense, BriteLite and TruView Plus headlamps – that are available for virtually any popular late-model passenger vehicle. Plus, now through November 30, 2013, consumers who purchase a pair of any of these premium Wagner headlamps can qualify for a $10 rebate.

According to the company, Wagner NightDefense headlamp capsules provide an enhanced field of vision so the driver can better see the road, signs and other roadside objects, and also help eliminate offensive glare into oncoming traffic. These lamps have an exclusive tri-color/tri-zone coating that disperses light that is up to 40 percent brighter for optimum viewing and projects a beam pattern up to 60 feet longer than competing lamps.

Wagner BriteLite capsules deliver 80 percent more light to the road and project a beam pattern that is 120 feet longer than standard halogen headlamps, said the company. Wagner TruView Plus headlamps are Xenon gas-charged capsules that offer the “Purest, Whitest Light” to provide the look of high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps and provide exceptional forward visibility without projecting the offensive glare commonly associated with HID systems.

Wagner Lighting products are available through thousands of automotive parts and service providers across North America. To identify the right Wagner Lighting product for virtually any application, use the convenient, free www.FMe-cat.com electronic catalog.
