The bar keeps getting raised for cars to score in the top category of safety. Now, in addition to crash protection, cars must have effective headlights to get the highest rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Driving down a winding road at night, the power of your headlights may determine if you see a pedestrian or an oncoming car and are thus able to avoid an accident. That's why the IIHS is also weighing the effectiveness of headlights when assigning its top auto safety rating.

The importance of having the right tires for the right season can’t be stressed enough. It doesn’t matter how much R&D and engineering went into your car’s chassis and handling if you have low-quality rubber or rubber designed for another season; you won’t get the performance you paid for. Summer tires give you grip in hot and dry conditions; winter tires find traction where all other tires will slip and slide. But neither of those would be worth a damn if you took them off-road. So be sure you’re prepared year-round.
Where a summer tire’s near-slick surface would just aquaplane, the tread on a winter tire shovels and pumps water out of the way while gripping the snow to keep you going in the right direction.
