Dear Drivers:

About half the cars I see on the road are silver, gray, slate blue, or some other color that can be difficult to see even in good driving conditions. When it's foggy out, as it was Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday mornings, your damn cars are invisible. And I should know: I drive a silver 2000 Honda Accord. My previous car was slate blue.

So for the love of god, TURN ON YOUR HEADLIGHTS. In foggy conditions, they're not to help you see. They're to make you visible to others.

Thank you.

We bought a Honda Fit last June and it's got running lights below the headlights which switch on automatically when you start the engine. They're not bright enough to see the road at night, but they do make the car (black) visible in fog and rain and twilight. I hope this catches on with other manufacturers.
