More rude driving habits exposed
RE: Waving goodbye to The Wave (Feb. 11)
Here’s a couple more old fashioned courtesies that are disappearing along with The Wave.
1. Turning on the full headlight system in the fog. I can’t believe how many vehicles I see driving in very foggy conditions, especially on the Mountain where fog is always thicker, without their full headlights turned on. And for those vehicles equipped with daytime running lights, this applies to the tail lights as well. Common sense would dictate that having all lights on in the fog increases your chances of being seen and staying alive.
2. Turning down your high beams when approaching oncoming traffic. Again it amazes me at the number of inconsiderate drivers who feel they have a right to use their high beams at all times, with no regard to the safety and inconvenience of their fellow drivers. It’s very simple. When you see oncoming traffic, turn down your high beams. The other driver’s eyes will thank-you. Ernie Caterini, Hamilton
