Driving Blind

I've mentioned previously how people like to preserve their headlights by not using them around dawn and dusk, but even more fascinating is the idea of driving through heavy rain without lights.

Puddles produce spray which, added to the rain makes visibility even worse and windshield wipers can't always keep up with the flow of water as well as one might like.

No matter. Why waste electricity to be seen?

It takes effort to turn on the windshield wipers.

But turning on the headlights? Nah.

Dear Conch:

Do you have a thorn in your crotch these days? My plans to head to Kwy West in the Spring, advanced one notch today.

Fondest regards,
Twisted Roads

We are preparing evacuation plans. We know what to do when trouble approaches these lovely islands.

I think it is simply the self centered attitude that's all too common these days. Why bother turning on the headlights in the rain/fog/anytime unless it does something for ME? The only benefit is making it easier for others to see you.
