    Default Put your headlights on FFS!

    Everyday I keep witnessing my pet hate ,people that drive about in the dark without their headlights on! It still astounds me how you can drive about in pitch dark and not notice your lights aren't on,especially with everyone flashing you as you drive by! Rant over ill get off my soapbox now lol

    Agreed, watch a guy come out of Edinburgh this morning at 6.45 with just sidelights on. Cant figure it out. Best one I saw was a guy with sidelights on all the way down the M8 from Edinburgh and when I turned off at Jct4(16miles) he still only had side lights on, this was after 9pm one night btw!!!

    Its a misguided idea that they think they can see, but don't realise that your lights are as much about letting other road users see you, as you being able to see them. Also there is still this crazy notion that they are saving the battery by not using main beam.

    I hate it aswell halfwaits is what they are. Ive come to the conclusion that they possibly have a headlight out and instead of getting a new bulb they just dont turn them on and look like even more of a prat. Ohhh the fun id have if i was a traffic cop :-)

    I often wonder if it is because most dashboards are constantly lit? People do not appreciate that they havent actually put lights on?
