In fewer than three months, hurricane season will return which means Mother Nature may produce greater levels of rain, increasing the danger on the road. South Florida drivers should remember the proper use of vehicle lights in the event of rain.

Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/09/2019 -- During a rainstorm, headlights should remain on so fellow drivers can spot the vehicle during a heavy downpour. However, hazard lights should not be used. Drivers in South Florida may have seen others using their hazard lights on a rainy day for apparently no reason. Using these hazard lights on roads only results in greater confusion and more danger during rainy conditions. The use of these hazards (also commonly referred to as "flashers") is illegal and may result in a fine.

The flashers are for use when a vehicle is pulled over on the side of the road, if the vehicle is disabled, or if the vehicle is involved in an accident. Hazard lights are only to be used in motion if the vehicle is part of a funeral procession.
