LED Dynamic Daytime Running Lights (DRL) are now available for the popular Pajero and Triton models, announced Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited (MMAL) Parts & Accessories.
Already available on ASX models, and shortly to be available on Lancer, not only do daytime running lights add a dynamic visual lift to the face of the vehicle, according to the Australasian College of Road Safety they are an effective safety tool.
"Daytime running lights are a proven safety measure overseas and have been estimated to be able to prevent up to 11% of multi-vehicle severe crashes, and up to 12% of pedestrian fatal crashes in Australia."
"Numerous studies of the effectiveness of daytime running lights have been conducted over the last three decades. European studies show the potential savings from DRLs are;
28% of daytime fatal pedestrian crashes
25% of daytime multi-vehicle fatal crashes
20% of daytime multi-vehicle injury crashes
12% of daytime multi-vehicle property crashes"
The largest savings from daytime running lights would be in high severity crashes, including head-on and intersection crashes.” the ACRS stated*.
These kits have been designed as plug and play and adhere to all ADR and Australian Standards as well Mitsubishi’s own exacting quality assurance. Fitted by a Mitsubishi Dealer the DLRs retail for Pajero are on sale for $486.40 and Triton for $411.50.
