#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!
