On the 401 again yesterday, New Year's Day - no rest even for the virtuous.
As always, I marvelled at the number of people so unfamiliar with their cars that they don't realize their Daytime Running Lights don't light up their cars' taillights, which essentially turns them into stealthmobiles in the gloomy, rainy, extremely low-visibility conditions that were prevalent yesterday.
TURN ON YOUR FREAKIN' HEADLIGHTS, PEOPLE!!
But I was also reminded of how many cars I see without even FRONT DRLs.
Since all cars sold in Canada since 1990 have had to have DRL, I wondered - where are these cars coming from? Are these all US-sourced cars? Some people down there think DEL is some kind of Communist plot...
But then I thought - aren't all cars brought in from the US (or anywhere) supposed to be retro-fitted with DRL (it is often no more complicated than changing a setting in the car's computer), just as they're supposed to have their speedos, odos, etc., converted to Metric?
So, a mystery it remains...
