Wipers? Headlights!

Why do so many drivers ignore the state law that requires use of headlights, when wipers are in use?

"On a dark and gloomy morning..." - you know how that starts... Why do drivers of grey or other dark-colored cars refuse to turn on the headlights when the wipers are in use, particular in early-morning hours or in heavy rain or in foggy conditions? Don't they realize their cars are nearly invisible?

It's the "headlights" that are required, not daytime running lamps; not fog lamps; not parking lights. Headlights!

So, folks, there's that little switch on the dashboard that needs pulling or turning. Head on over to Gold's Gym and work out for two hours, so that you'll have the strength to move that little knob. Or you might hit Starbuck's and tell them extra caffeine.

Turning on the headlights also lights up the back of your car. Good safety function. Give the driver behind you a little extra warning.

Try it. You'll like it.
