Shed a little light on the subject

Sometimes we all need a reminder about different things. This for instance is about exterior illumination & automobiles. I often see people driving with headlights out, not using turn signals, or even riding the brakes.

When I taught my 2 youngest children to drive, I made sure to talk to them about lights. They are not for you the driver so much as for the other drivers on the road. You know that you are turning, but without that light to tell other drivers that you are turning, they do not know until they see that car turning.

By the same token, if your bright headlights are on, it makes it harder for other drivers. Especially in the rain. The glare can result in difficulty seeing due to that excessive shine. 
Good windshield wiper blades help too. 

Be courteous, be kind. And remember, we're all in this together.
