Poll: Do you still turn your hazard lights on during heavy rainfall?

What's your take now?
by Jason Tulio | Jul 2, 2018


It's a debate that seemingly has no end in sight. Three years ago, we published a story asking you guys what you thought about turning your hazard lights on in rainy weather. We also posed the question to some industry executives to get their take on the matter. While some said the practice was okay, most said that they were firmly against it.

When it comes to this issue, we've always been in the latter camp. As we wrote back in 2015:

Do not use your hazard lights in the rain. It's not only pointless, it's also confusing and even potentially dangerous. If you want to increase the visibility of your car to other motorists, just turn on your regular lights, period. If you feel road visibility is next to zero, you shouldn't be driving--pull over to a safe shoulder.

But that was then. Today, in 2018, we've noticed a shift in the behavior of motorists. Back in the day during heavy downpour, hazard lights would turn on in droves. Now though, we're seeing them less and less. A sign of changing times, perhaps? 

So once again, we turn the question over to you guys: In 2018, do you use your hazard lights during rainy weather? Answer our poll below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
