It can be tough to remember every single rule and regulation of the road at times. There are some very specific guidelines that drivers are technically supposed to follow and sometimes they can slip your mind, especially during challenging situations and inclement weather. For instance, did you know that in North Carolina drivers are required to use headlights during times between sunset and sunrise, when visibility is less than 400 feet, or when windshield wipers are in use?
Rules about headlight use vary by state as well so if you frequently drive into other states you would have to remember a whole new set of laws. Nissan has made this confusing set of regulations a bit easier for drivers by introducing Smart Auto Headlights on vehicles like the Nissan Altima, Nissan Pathfinder, and Nissan Sentra. This system will automatically turn on headlights when low lighting is detected or when the windshield wipers are in use!
