Automatic Headlampon: The Key To Motorcycle Safety
Automatic Headlampon (AHO) is a functionality that will enhance safety on two-wheelers. In India, large amount of accidental deaths occur on two wheels. Previously, motorcycle safety was the most neglected part in the country. But these days, most of the cities are going with mandatory helmets and awareness among motorcycle riders is also increasing. Government Of India is mandating this feature in order to increase the rider's safety.
Why Automatic Headlampon (AHO) is required?
Most of the motorcycle riding occurs at the day time. As roads are widening, the speed of the four wheeler / cars is also increasing with the same pace. It is becoming more and more difficult to identify the position of a motorcycle on the road and take judgement accordingly.
AHO helps to recognize the exact position of two-wheeler on the road. Particularly, it helps to identify the current position of two-wheeler even at higher speeds. In rainy, foggy and dusty condition it has got same advantages as visibility becomes less.
It is more advantageous to more powerful motorcycles during overtaking. Four wheeler drivers can recognize the motorcycle in the rear view mirror because of the reflection of your headlamps. At least he/she will know something is coming from behind. Thus, AHO helps in reducing motorcycle accidents and increase the rider safety.
Working of Automatic Headlampon (AHO):
Automatic headlamp on keeps the motorcycle headlamp on regardless of day or night. It starts when the motorcycle engine starts & it stops when the motorcycle engine stops. There is no headlamp switch either. There is no change in performance of the bulb or battery. The operation hours of the bulb remain the same. There is no additional service required as well. Regular checks at service intervals are enough to maintain the AHO.
AHO will surely increase the rider’s safety. It also helps in reducing the number of accidents on Indian highways. The government is going in the right direction and it’s a welcoming step towards safety of the riding community in India.
