How do you turn off car lights?

What’s the best way to turn off your car lights? I can't figure out how to turn off the headlights in my new car, and it’s driving me crazy!

New cars can be tricky to navigate, but the light controls are almost universal. You can usually use one of the arms around your steering wheel to control your headlights. If they don’t work, you should look for a separate headlights dial around the dashboard.
If you have a newer car, you may have running lights, which turn off automatically when you turn off your car. Try parking the car, getting out, and locking the doors. If the lights turn off, then you won’t need to worry about it in the future! Remember, you should always turn off your headlights before you park your car for the night, or you’ll risk killing your battery.
If you’re afraid your battery might die at an inconvenient time, consider getting roadside assistance with Jerry.
