Police are reminding drivers to use their high beam headlights wisely.
 
"It's a safety issue. With the new lights and LED lights they're very bright and we want people who meet on the road to be able to see," said Janice Schoepp, Constable with the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP.
 
In November, a man driving through High River was issued a ticket for failing to use low beam headlights within 300 meters of an oncoming vehicle. 
 
Another notable offence includes failing to use low beam headlights while following a vehicle within 150 metres.
 
Fines for not complying to these regulations are $155.
