Lights of the Vehicles and the Road Traffic Safety

Rievaj Vladimír, Mokričková Lenka

Abstract


The article deals with the issue of lighting of the vehicle and its influence of the origin of traffic accidents in poor visibility, or dark. The first part is focused on the analysis of the accident under different weather and light conditions. The second part introduces the definitions of the basic terms like a illumination distance of headlamps, sight distance from the vehicle and visibility distance, that are closely linked with the issue of lighting of the vehicle and the recognition of the obstacles for poor visibility in the light of the headlamps. The experimental measures have been identified and the specific values of these distances and then numerically and graphically evaluated.
