Pack it in

There are far too many inconsiderate drivers in the area who turn their car’s fog lights on as routine when it gets dark. That is so antisocial, potentially dangerous and also illegal.

Fog lights are only to be used when the visibility is less that 50 yards (maybe metres in these days of being European). They create a wide flat beam so you can pick out the kerb and the centre road line.

They also create a pronounced reflection off wet road surfaces, causing extra glare to oncoming drivers.

So pack it in before someone gets so dazzled they crash headlong into you!
