One good thing auto makers did recently is to have auto headlights go on when a car is started. Evidently, people who have older model cars and who don’t know the state law are unaware that once the windshield wipers are turned on, the car’s headlights need to be turned on.

How many times, during a snow or rain storm, have I seen a number of cars/trucks with no lights on, even when the visibility was awful. Dark colored vehicles blend in with the road and make it extra difficult to see them. Luckily, I have not hit, or been hit by one of those clueless drivers — yet.

For everyone’s safety, people should please turn on their cars’ headlights during bad weather. It isn’t that difficult.

As an aside, a car’s turn signals are there for a reason, too.
