It’s another edition of “Things You Hate To Happen To You!”
#5 – Driving With High Beams On
Since I am the Night DJ (which means it is normally DARK outside when I leave work), I get the privilege of encountering people on the road who do not understand road driving courtesy….. as in NOT driving right behind me or in front of me coming the opposite direction with their HIGH BEAM LIGHTS ON!
Here is what I have found… I will be driving and someone coming from the opposite direction will have their “high beam lights” on and, in an attempt to get them to turn them to low beam, you find out that they only have high beam lights because their low beams are BROKEN. Or what you thought was their high beams really is their low beams….. and then you get blinded and see spots for five minutes.
As well, there is always that one person who loves to have their brights on while tailgating your vehicle. So not only are you trying to get them off your tail, you have to do so without the use of your eyes since you just got BLINDED in your rear view mirror.
Or another horrible twist of events? You flash your brights at the other person to get them to shut off theirs, and then you see this:
Great, not only are you now blind from their brights, but you now get to have a friendly visit with the highway patrol.
Has this happened to you before? I know it has to me! It’s just another one of those things that you have no control over, but happens to you anyways!
