With zero visibility, drivers can use their horns to signal the cars in front of them. Make sure your car’s horns are still producing loud and crisp sound because if it isn’t, consider having them replaced. HELLA has horns with varying sounds that are suitable for all weather conditions. Some of the horns include compact with optimal sound projection like the Compact Horn, soft timbre and mellow sound for a more harmonic tone like the Royal Twin Tone trumpet horn, and a strong penetrating tone that is ideal for tough off-road use like Super Tone Horn. They have twice the lifetime of original equipment (OE) specifications, are corrosion-resistant, and can be installed easily in tight and limited spaces.


When you encounter zero visibility caused by the heavy rainfall, your lights immediately become an indicator of your location and a signal that other drivers can use to navigate. Make sure that your lights are clean, bright, and working.
