Not a bad idea, but with some drivers more visibility means more time to aim at you!

Unfortunately these things happen, I think that's partly why Leos noiw park their cruisers offset to offer some cushion. Its also why we have move over laws. IMHO texting and cell phone talkers are a bad combination especially coupled with the ever increasing congestion. What irritates me is people who own cars with technology that can help and don't use it. I see many drivers with cars I know have auto lamps that drive with their lights manually turned off. A if you use 'em manually turn them on when its dark or raining, the amount of gas your saving is miniscule compared to the safety factor. Seeing is half the battle DRL illumination and no tails in dark is not the answer. B. Just because you gauges are lit doesn't mean you lights are on . you can see me since my lights are on do me the courtesy and do the same. Almost all cars have a warning light so you didn't know isn't an excuse.

My second irritation is especially those driving late model cars I know have Bluetooth support. At minimum while you are driving at least both hands on the wheel and head up. This drives me nuts when I see a BMW or Lincoln using a handset, your car supports hands free, pairing isn't rocket science, if you have a job that requires you to make decisions via phone you can pair it no problem. If its pleasure there is nothing so important you can't hold of until your at your destination. While on hands free unlike a passenger they can't see but at least they aren't impeding. If I know the person on the other end is driving I hang up I will not be an accomplish knowingly. And mft and entune for instance has vanned text responses and with some phones can read your message. If you can afford tens of thousands on a car a 500 dollar phone shouldn't break the bank

I was in the Black Hills of SD last week and happened on this spot. It's on US 14a between Custer St Park and Mt. Rushmore. At either end of the highway it warns of low clearance tunnels and winding road. I thought I'd recognized the road in the video the first time I saw it and drove it to be sure. (Also to enjoy a great scenic drive with views of "The Heads" framed in the tunnels)

Lots of folks don't know that, when some older GM car turns its DRLs on and the panel lights also come on, the tail lights do not light up.

I picked up a Chevy Cavalier rental a few years ago at Wichita airport after dark and drove about 30 miles to my hotel. It wasn't until the next morning, I saw the clear decal with VERY small white lettering, down in the bottom corner of the instrument panel, alerting me to that "design feature".
