Dear People Who Drive Cars

Dear People Who Drive Cars,

Does this ever happen to you? You’re driving along, minding your own business, when a car rams into you for no good reason!  When you talk to the driver of the other vehicle, he keeps using phrases like, “I couldn’t see you!” and “You just came out of nowhere!” and “Visibility is really limited by the intense mist and fog.  Why didn’t you have your lights on?”  These phrases can be confusing and tiresome.  You were obviously there; why didn’t the other driver see you?  Thankfully, I have a solution that will keep you from having this happen again and again!

Most likely, your car is equipped with light bulbs attached to the front.  These lights are called “headlights” and you’ve probably used them to see at nighttime.  But, did you know that headlights have other uses, too? Headlights, as you know, are useful for seeing, but, as many of you don’t seem to know, they are also useful for being seen.

In fact, if you drive at night with your headlights on, the reason you are not repeatedly hit by other cars is probably your headlights.  Those lights indicate to other drivers that you are present so that they can avoid slamming into your vehicle.

“That’s fine at night,” you’re probably thinking, “but what about times during the day when people can’t see me?  What do I do then?”

Amazingly, those same headlights work indicate your presence in rain, mist, fog, snow or other limited visibility situations!  They work both at night and during the day!

You may be able to see where you’re going without headlights on, but if there is mist or rain, other drivers may not be able to see you!  That’s where the headlights come in.  Just turn them on and presto! Other drivers can see you!  It’s like magic!

Don’t believe me?  Read the following testimonials:

It’s raining outside and you’re in a silver car against a silver sky.  Why don’t you have your lights on? No one can see you!
-Me, yesterday while driving through Dallas

Turn. Your. Lights. On. You. Idiot.
-Anonymous member of my family

The jerk just came out of nowhere! He didn’t have his headlights on!
-Fellow who was involved in an accident on a misty day**

Headlights are available on most vehicles.  They are typically already installed and ready to use!  Just a click of a button or a twist of a knob and you’re ready to roll about town in style and safety!

I hope this message was useful to you or someone you love.  Feel free to share this special and exciting information with anyone who you think could use it!

Sincerely,

Chelsea
