Bright idea: Don't delay when turning on headlights
I railed on this subject this time a year ago, which means it's time for a new rant: Why do a few drivers insist on waiting until the final minutes of waning daylight to turn on their headlights?
I guess they'd say at that hour, they still don't need their lights. But for those of us whose eyes aren't quite as sharp, seeing them — so as not to hang a left turn in their path — may get trickier amid the dimming effect of sunset.
I stress a few drivers don't use their lights, because most I see coming the other way do. Those who don't are often driving dark-colored vehicles that all but disappear at dusk.
I don't just see this practice here. A car tailgating me recently on a Phoenix highway didn't have its lights on, either. This wasn't during the late afternoon or evening; it was well after nightfall.
What that driver was thinking, I have no idea.
