Abstract:
Brazil, that presents one of the highest accidents indexes of the world, does not have any specific regulation related to the use of an external light during the day time which provides a better visibility of the vehicle in movement and according to studies gives more reaction time for the other road users. Many countries in Europe and North America shows good results since they adopted the lights on during the day with collision reduction of vehicle to vehicle, vehicle to pedestrian and vehicle to cyclists. The aim of this study is to show the benefits of the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and its relation to the reduction of the traffic accidents, as well as a brief analysis on the use of a dedicated system, which can be more efficient since it can be designed to provide a light distribution allowing a better visibility as possible.
