The high beams are extra powerful lights that provide added visibility for the driver. To turn them on, push the turn signal lever forward until it snaps into place. To turn off the high beams, pull the lever back towards you until it returns to the original position. Tip The high beam headlights are so bright that they can hurt the visibility of cars in front of you. Only use the lights when there are no vehicles in front of your own, and no oncoming traffic.
