We’re getting our first big rain today, so I feel it necessary to remind everyone that by California State law, you must have your low beam headlights on at all times of the day when your windshield wipers are in operation. Driving lights, parking lights, and fog lights do not count. People, do not get dependent on your vehicle turning on its headlights for you. Many cars have driving lights that are the same strength as your low beam headlights, except for the fact that your taillights do not go on. In this submission, taken on the 5 Fwy northbound in Valencia, the woman driving this Mercedes clearly doesn’t understand that parking lights are not sufficient for driving at night, especially on the freeway. It’s not a difficult concept guys…when it’s dark or raining, turn your headlights on. Period. End of discussion. It’s like wiping your ass after you sh*t; it should be second nature.
