if people weren't always on the brakes for nothing that would help too.. darn, driving around here they're on the brake for every corner.. they're not slowing down, they're just eternally covering the brake

whats up with people just leaving the high beams on all the time? I have my hand on the 'brights' lever the entire time i drive at night because i have to bright nearly 80% of the cars on the road.
especially those newer models with the high intensity blue lights. they can see like daylight with the low beams on but no no.. they need the high beams on..
I don't know about other places, but don't remember dimming headlights being mentioned in drivers handbook here. Not sure that it is law here or just more of a courtesy. Of course flashing headlights to other drivers to warn of the cop at the next bend in the corner wasn't mentioned either.
yea.. you're not allowed to leave your high beams on or use them in town. It actually blinds other people coming at you.. making it pretty dangerous..
that's just basic common sense and its the law.

I just picked up my new car today and I wanted to make sure I was highly visible. "Saftey first" has always been my motto.
