* CAN someone please explain the reluctance of many motorists to switch on their headlights when visibility is poor or we have inclement weather? I wonder if they ever give a thought as to why other drivers have their headlights on? They come out of the gloom and it is only at the last minute they are visible.

Just now the sun is very low in the sky early in the morning and in the evening.

I put my headlights on so that oncoming drivers who are driving into the sun can see me.

Do others think that putting their headlights on will run down their car battery? Modern alternators cope very well with all of a car's needs.

I think there was an old motto of "be seen and be safe".
