A: The high-beams are extra-bright headlights ...

The high-beams are extra-bright headlights that can allow you increased visibility when it is dark out. To turn on the high-beams, push the turn signal lever (which protrudes from the left side of the steering column) towards the front of the car, until it locks into place. To turn off the high-beams, pull the lever back towards you until it returns to its original position. When the high-beams are on, an indicator light will illuminate to remind you. Tip *Never use the high-beams when other cars are driving towards you, as the brightness can impede their visibility.
