Headlight measures are often ignored

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

The Good: Several years ago, legislation was passed to improve motorist safety.

That law was that whenever windshield wipers are in use, headlights must be turned on. Violation carries a substantial fine.

The Bad: Drivers’ failure to comply.

The Indifference: Lack of any enforcement, as well as failure to comply even by some police cruisers.

Solution: Enact legislation like several states and Canada requiring daytime headlights when driving.

Do you talk to yourself when you're alone?

Yes, but I’m basically just thinking out loud.
No, that would be weird.
I don’t know. Next time I’m alone, I’ll ask.
