LETTER: Don’t assume car lights are illuminated

I’d just like to tag onto Roy Hutchings letter from this past week.

It annoys me that so many vehicles, have been driving about in this poor weather with either no lights on at all, or their daytime running lights only.

I can only surmise with the latter that they are looking at their reflection in the car in front, and mistakenly believing they are illuminated all round. You are not!

Daytime running lights do not illuminate you at the rear. Unless that little green headlight symbol is illuminated on your dashboard, do not assume by reflections alone that you are lit up.

Paler coloured cars about completely disappear in a good blizzard!
