Vehicle tail lights should be on when it’s raining

Rain puddling on the highway is very dangerous

It’s me again – what this time? We had to go to Vancouver last Tuesday. It was raining – two inches in 24 hours.

Rooster tails behind cars and trucks with no tail lights on. It should be a law if wipers are on, tail lights come on automatically.

In the ‘90s, we had an Oldsmobile that had rear fog lights – yes rear fog lights (two big red lights brighter than tail lights). A great idea that didn’t catch on – too bad!

Rain puddling on the highway is very dangerous. Christy Clark maybe you can get rid of these. A very good friend lost his 15-year-old son to hydroplaning. It killed him from sorrow. On Tuesday, I saw three accidents – rear enders. Also, put your cell phone in the trunk when driving.

Hang loose you all.
