AHO Features: Nowadays, many times you must have seen a new two-wheeler while walking on the road or even at home, their lights turn on as soon as you turn them on.However, there is no separate switch to turn them off.
On this, people have to say that by keeping the headlights on all the time, the battery of the car quickly deteriorates and also makes a difference to its mileage. That’s why many people install a separate switch to turn it off. But here’s the question: does it really matter?
When was the change made?
Actually, let us tell you that this change was made in two-wheelers from 1 April 2017. After making the change, the high beam can be changed to low beam or low beam to high beam. But the headlight can not be completely turned off. The Transport Ministry has taken this decision in view of the road accidents caused by these two wheelers.
Laws have been in place in many countries for years
The rule of keeping the automatic headlights on was to increase the visibility of the two-wheeler. This rule is already in place in many countries such as the US and Europe. Due to this, accidents on the roads were also reducing.
The main reason for its implementation
The objective behind implementing the Automatic Headlight On (AHO) rule by the government was that two wheelers or small vehicles are not visible due to bad weather or fog and fog. It will be visible after the automatic headlights are on. This will reduce number of accidents.
Are the batteries draining fast enough?
Many people believe that applying AHO affects the mileage of the bike. With continuous use, the battery discharges quickly and needs to be replaced frequently. But experts say that there is no effect on the battery by keeping the headlight burning.
Impact on mileage
Nowadays, advanced battery technology and alternative technology are being adopted in bikes. So there is no effect on the battery even when the load is on. So after installing the AHO system, there will be no effect on its mileage.
