What Are Tail Lights?

On your vehicle, the tail lights are located at the rear of the car and face rearward. Tail lights may have reflective material on the inside that can help amplify the light to make it brighter, larger, and more visible.

Tail lights are red and also work on a relay with the headlights, meaning when the headlights are tuned on, the tail lights are also on. If your vehicle operates with automatic lights, the tail lights will illuminate when the headlights are on.

Tail lights can come in different types. The most common are LED lights, used because they require a smaller amount of energy and have a longer lifespan.

The Purpose of Tail Lights

Your vehicle’s tail lights are used as a safety mechanism on your vehicle. They help outline the rear edge of the vehicle to allow other drivers to properly gauge the size and shape of your vehicle. Tail lights can also be used for visibility, helping other drivers see your vehicle during weather conditions like rain and snow.

For safety, the tail lights will further illuminate when the brake pedal is activated. This can allow drivers to know to bring their vehicle to a stop to avoid a collision.
