Always ensure that the headlights, brake lights, and tail lights on your Toyota Corolla are working correctly. Damaged bulbs can earn you a ticket and put your life as well as that of the other motorists at risk. Carry out regular checks to ensure that you’re not driving around with broken bulbs. If you need a replacement, only buy from trusted manufacturers rather than getting aftermarket imitations.
