HOW TO: Use Your Hazard Lights Properly
Although some people may not realize it, there is a proper time to use hazard lights, and it doesn't include parking illegally so you can run into the store to grab a cup of coffee! All kidding aside, some people misuse this feature, which is intended to alert other drivers of hazards. As with most laws, the specifics vary by state when it comes to proper use of hazard lights.
In some states, you can drive with your hazards as you deem appropriate, and in others it's not permitted at all while your vehicle is in motion. In North Carolina, hazard light use is permitted while driving unless otherwise posted. In South Carolina, hazard lights may be used while driving to warn other drivers about a traffic hazard that requires unusual care in approaching, overtaking or passing.
Other times when hazard lights are permitted include:
- when you're experiencing vehicle problems that prevent you from moving
- when you're parked in a loading or unloading zone
- emergency situations that prevent you from safely exiting traffic
- during a funeral procession
Some states include bad weather as a reason to use hazard lights, but there is much debate as to whether it is safe to do so. Turn signals may be difficult to distinguish from hazard lights in bad weather, which may put you at risk, as other drivers might not be able to anticipate your next move. In addition, using hazards during bad weather may confuse other drivers, who may take their eyes off the road in anticipation of an emergency situation.
If you find yourself in an emergency situation and require roadside assistance, turn on your hazard lights and call AAA for help. Check out AAA's safe driving resources to familiarize yourself with traffic safety issues in the Carolinas.
