How Not to Use Your Hazard Lights

A Georgia police department is advising drivers to not use hazard lights while driving, even in the rain.

 

In some states, the use of hazard lights is permitted while driving.

The metro Atlanta police department warned that using hazard lights may actually signal to other drivers that you are stopped or stalled on the road, and the lights can reduce the ability to see if the vehicles ahead are braking.

 

Hazard lights also "turn off your ability to use your turn signals," the police department wrote in its Facebook post.

 

Instead of using hazard lights while driving, consider not driving at all until road conditions improve.

 

"If you cannot see, pull over to a safe place and wait (until) driving conditions are better," the department wrote. "Your flashers should only be used while your vehicle is stopped or disabled on the roadway or shoulder. This is a sign for emergency services that someone is in need of assistance."
