quote: I'm perfectly capable of turning on my own headlights.
quote: One of the first essentials of road safety is to regard every death as avoidable, and the second essential is to consider every death is the result of too loose an interpretation of the road rules.
quote: When the police have a relaxed attitude towards violating road rules, then there will be more fatalities and crashes than if the police apply strict standards towards road rules because most drivers drive to the loosest tolerances they can get away with, not to the tightest tolerances they can attain.
quote: This is where light sensor activated headlights come in. They judge the ambient light by more or less unchanging standards, and when the light is getting to the point where a vehicle is starting to becoming a hazard on the road then it will turn the car lights on. They don't care whether the driver remembers or forgets about the light conditions, they turn the lights of the car on.
quote: I am sorry. This is grade A idealistic drivel.
quote: Unless the light bulb is out. The sensor is out. The wiring between them is out. They don't adjust to different situations either...
quote: I have a feeling you also love to hear yourself talk. Because you sure like to read what you say.
