Drivers ‘should make sure headlights are clean with spring approaching’

Drivers may think that using car plastic polish to ensure the headlights are clear is something which matters most during the winter, however, they would be wrong.

That is according to Rich White, executive director of the Car Care Council, who stated that while clear headlights is essential in adverse weather, they are also important during the spring.

"Better weather and longer days mean more driving and longer trips, often after dark. Lights play a major role in safe driving, as the chance of an accident increases if you can't see or be seen," he noted.

As well as making sure the bulbs are still working, motorists need to clean headlights and rear lights to remove any debris that may reduce their effectiveness, with microfibre cloths and car plastic polish two tools that can help them do this.

According to a recent survey by, 37 per cent of Britons have not washed their cars in a month.
