Turn Your Fucking Lights On!

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, Dec 26, 2012 at 2:02 PM

I'm tired of assholes driving around after dark using only parking / marker lights. You flipped the switch halfway, how much effort does it take to go all the way and actually use the headlights on your car?

But I don't think it's laziness. I think people are convinced that they look tough with only the parking lights, like they're piloting a stealth bomber or something. Well, that'll look real awesome when someone doesn't see your dumb ass and you cause an accident. Way to go, jackass.

Similarly, if you're driving around with only your parking lights because you're pretending to be a thug— well, don't complain about being stopped and searched unreasonably, you moron. Might as well slap some bullet hole / pot leaf decals on the back window and get a vanity plate that reads YOLO.

And the last group of these assholes (as I imagine them) are the cheapskates who get butthurt about daytime running lights ("It's my choice as an Amurrican!!) and such. It gets dark at about 4pm these days... 7pm comes around and these tools still trying to save a penny or two worth of bulb lifespan by careening around the roads in near-darkness. Again, have fun when you kill someone who didn't see you coming. Totally worth it so you'll only have to buy two sets of replacement bulbs over the lifespan of your car, rather than three. What a bargain.
