While I’m at it

Since it seems that most of the driving population of the United States has a problem telling under what conditions you need your headlights, rather than give you some sort of list that you will forget here’s a helpful hint to keep you safe, and more importantly, to keep me from dying screaming in a fire with you:

Just. Turn. On. Your. Headlights.

Since it is too hard for you to remember that you ought to turn them on in fog, just turn on your headlights when you get in the car.  Since it is apparently too hard for you to remember that you ought to turn on your headlights when the sun isn’t up yet, just turn on your headlights when you get in the car.  Since it is too hard for you to remember to turn on your headlights when you are driving a little grey car in the twilight, just turn on your headlights when you get in the car.  One rule.  Keep it simple.  Turn on your headlights.  Broad daylight and it hasn’t rained in a month?  TURN ON YOUR HEADLIGHTS.

With any luck you’ll forget to turn them off and your battery will be dead, keeping your apparently too-dumb-to-breathe body off the road.

  1. Oh man, I hate the little grey car in the twilight! No clue that they have the cloaking device on.

  2. And I run across one every single day…

  3. My new one is small and black. This concerns me a bit, for the very reasons Bluesun expresses.So I drive at sunup (sunset) with the lights on and fog lamps as well.Besides, the fog lamps look coooool.
