Headlight usage offence for using dim lights.

[external_link_head]

Okay, so in the night I use dim lights thinking I am following the law and try to get the achievement for perfect run NO fines NO damage, but i keep getting a fine for using my lights at night when do you use the lights in the game.

theres different lights add me i can help you

First press of L (default key for lights) turns on the running lights. Second press turns on the lowbeams. Third press turns them off.

Many people mistake the first press as being the lowbeams since the dash lights up as well.

I run with my headlights almost all of the time (mainly because I forget to turn them off in the day)

okay thanks for the help, so in night i should use the second press.

wel you have a running light and the regular head lights

Makes me wonder how people don’t notice their headlights are off. Are they driving in cities and lighted highways only with HDR on?

I have the lights on all the time, for safety, I use the cab settings, turn on from there and map highbeam to “Y” on controller. I have only recieved one ticket for highbeams that I remember.

There are no tickets for highbeam use. But I’ve seen reports from others that the precipitation is very touchy and the slightest fog or rain will require you to have the lights on even though it looks clear.

There have been a few times when I didn’t notice. I drive with them on all the time but sometimes the repair/upgrade shop turns them off for you. I just assumed they were still on and didn’t discover my error until I came to a road that didn’t have street lights. This game could use a dashboard indicator that your lights are on, like ETS 2 has.

I always run with high beams on during the night because my screen (laptop) is too dark to see anything with low beams. I’ve never gotten a ticket for it, though drivers are always flashing their high beams at me.

Oh, they are really flashing. Cool feature. I noticed something couple times, but I usually switch to low beam whenever I spot incoming car (real life habit), so wasn’t sure

Yeah, they even flash across medians and through barriers, which they should not be doing.

I run with lights, beacon & aux lights all the time, plus high beams at night.

Screw everybody else on the road. I want to be seen.

head light flash can mean cops are round

Wish there was an option to allow switching of the lamps between low and high beam, as well as to turn off the flashing lights of AI cars who have the benefit of being AI and not affected by light whereas I, the player, am.
