For the longest time, funeral directors got excited when they test drove a hearse or funeral car with wig wag headlights, but it’s been a long time since there have been real innovation to headlights in funeral cars. Until now.
We could talk about LED technology, but that would be slightly boring. After all, light-emitting diodes have been used in lighting for a few short years now. When LED headlights first hit the market, they were truly an innovation worth writing home about – even in funeral cars. But it does get better.
And what’s better than LED wig wag headlights? How about adaptive headlights?
What Are Adaptive Headlights?
Adaptive headlights are headlights that autocorrect to match the lighting needs of the driving situation. For instance, if you are carrying a casket over several miles and find yourself driving at night, when you turn onto a dark road your headlights could become brighter. They will dim when you hit the well-lit city streets.
Another way adaptive headlights can help your funeral car fleet is in the direction of your headlights. Instead of pointing toward the side of the road as traditional headlights do, adaptive headlights point directly at the road in front of you. Then, when your funeral cars are confronted with oncoming traffic, they will point slightly down toward the road to prevent from blinding other drivers.
This is a great time for funeral car technology, and that includes headlight improvements. The next time you consider buying a new funeral car, ask about adaptive headlighting.
