Cyclops warning

00.00 | 30 November 2011 |

Irish RSO Noel Gibbons is warning of the dangers posed by vehicles with one failed headlight, which he has christened ‘Cyclopes’.

Mr Gibbons says: “Many motorists are not checking that both their vehicle’s headlights are working correctly. At the start of every journey, drivers should ensure that each headlight is working and adjusted correctly.

”Having a headlight out is dangerous in two ways: not only can the driver of the vehicle not see properly with only half the usual light available, but the defective headlight means that other road users will have difficulty spotting the vehicle properly.”
