Maybe some folks don't remember that as of July 1, 2007, it's the law that whenever the weather is inclement enough to require the windshield wipers to be on, you MUST have your headlights on. Driving around Pleasanton this weekend, it appears that at least half of the cars on the road did not have their headlights on, even when their windshield wipers were working away like mad.
Not sure if it's people forgetting the law or whether they're just thinking that it applies to everyone else but them?
It's just common sense, too -- especially light-colored cars which are very hard to see when there's any kick-up spray on the road.
Please take the extra second to turn on the headlights when it's bad weather ... and at dusk as well. It helps keep everyone safe, including your loved ones.
