Car Headlights


Switch off those bloody head-lights in town!

Driving in and about town you can see can't you?

I mean - it's so bright you can't even see your own headlights can you?  
So WHY ARE YOUR HEADLIGHTS ON IN TOWN BUDDY?

It's all about two things, you see, darlings.
Distractions, and Glare.  
Our strange little country's town roads are just stuffed with road-markings that are either bleedin' obvious, impossible to keep to, unnecessary or mis-leading.  Coloured tarmac, multi-coloured lines, zig-zags, keep left signs, boxes for this, boxes for that, chequered jobbies for whatever - all placed beneath & alongside a truly stunning amount of "street furniture".

. . . . . and they're all lit up from overhead lights.
Goddamn it, it's virtually daylight.

Yet the cars plod & whiz about headlights ablaze, high-intensity lights on, DRLs in jazzy shapes, jeeps with high-set lamps . . . . . DAZZLING.

. . . . . . and one day, some report will come out " a little less light, a little less eye-catching, eye-focusing dazzle, and we'd all SEE that much better on the roads."
