  • poll: Do you turn your headlights on in bad weather


    Yes, I drive with them on all the time (not counting daytime runners)

    Nope, don't see the point

    I always drive with my headlights on.  I’m with you, it drives me absolutely bonkers when people don’t have their headlights on when there is low visibility!

    @hiroshymatetrastar:  Right??  Sometimes I wish I were a cop so I could ticket people for this stuff.  It seems like people just don’t care anymore

    Mine are always on, thats how my car is.  But yes, I HATE IT when it’s super foggy like that and some people don’t turn their lights on!  I know in some southern state they have signs posted saying “lights on in rain” that should just be common sense!

    This stuck in my head from when my dad was teaching me about motorcycles:

    “Always have your headlights on at all times, because you want to be as visible as possible.”

    I don’t get it- why would anyone NOT have their lights on ALL THE TIME?  What is the reason or excuse?  Why wouldn’t you want to be as visible as possible?

    It is one of my biggest pet peeves- when someone does not have them on and it is getting dark!  I always pull up next to people and tell them – people drive without them on at night all the time!

    I live in the Bay Area. We’re required to turn ours on for bridges, tunnels, etc in addition to bad weather. Obviously San Fran is known for its fog…so people are surprisingly pretty good about it here.

    @hiroshymatetrastar:  Don’t know what portion of PA you live in, but I live right in the heart of Amish Country and I get really frustrated when buggies are out when it is that foggy with no lights on. I always have my headlights on (and when it is foggy, my fog lights) but I have been driving along more than once when it is foggy and almost ran right into the back of a buggy because they didn’t have their flashing lights on. I mean, seriously. Don’t kill someone because you don’t want to drive a car.

    I agree that people should be fined if they don’t use their headlights more. I don’t think a lot of people realize that law.

    That has been the law in NY before I even learned to drive more than 10 years ago, I thought it was everywhere.

    my car follows the rules for me. Its always on auto so when it gets to be a certain level of “dark” it automatically goes on. I do have to do it myself in rain sometimes since it stays too bright at times for th elights to kick in. So as a rule, i follow the wipers=lights thing. And really in foggy weather its a must if you ask me.

    I live in a sunny state, so if my car didn’t automatically have them on at all times, I probably would only turn the lights on when it was dark. But also in bad weather! It’s common sense. I don’t want to get hit.

    Sometimes it is so foggy in my niehgborhood that the only way I can see is without headlights…it is so scary!  I know my car is hard to see when it’s like that, so I usually ALWAYS have my lights on…but there is this one little stretch where I have to turn them off.

    Mine are always on auto so they turn on for me when needed. My daytime running lights are always on.

    I really just turn them on when I get in the car.  There isn’t a reason for them to be off, because it’s not like I’ll get a ticket for driving with my headlights on.  So I drive with them on all the time 🙂

    I live in PA and started driving in 2007. I’ve always driven anywhere, even on sunny days with my headlights on, it’s just safer that way.. I don’t understand why some people just are too lazy to do so. I understand forgetting to turn them on maybe once or twice when there is a lot going on, but really people? 

    That is all 🙂
