TAIL LIGHT ASSEMBLY & Tail Lamp
Tail light assembly is an important part of the back of the vehicle. Tail Lamp assembly is the group of lights that are mounted at the rear/ back end of the vehicle. It consists of 3 or 4 lights – tail light, brake light, reverse gear light and side indicator light. For example, TATA Ace has three chamber tail lamp assembly and Piaggio APE has 4 chamber tail lamp assembly. Each has a different purpose during low-visibility conditions like night/ dark sky/ bad weather or normal conditions.
Purpose of Tail light Assembly
Tail lights illuminate the rear sides of the vehicle. There are left and right side tail light assemblies. Left and right side tail lamp assemblies together signals the vehicles at the back regarding the movement of the vehicle in the front. During low-visibility conditions, the driver driving the vehicle at the back can estimate the size, shape and distance between the trucks/ car. During normal conditions, left and right side indicators help in signaling to the back vehicle the movement of the vehicle to the left or right side.
Parts of Tail light Assembly
As mentioned, Tail Light assembly consists of Tail Light, Brake light, Reversing light and side indicator light. Each has a different function:-
- Tail lights illuminate when the driver turns on the front headlights or when the hand/ parking brake is on.
- The brake light lights up immediately when the driver applies pressure to the brakes. On most vehicles, the tail lights are red and the brake lights are a more luminous red.
- The Reverse gear light goes on when the driver puts the reverse gear to move the vehicle back.
- Side indicator light is a blinking light and indicates movement of the vehicles to the left or side for a left or right turn or changing lanes on a road.
