Letter: Do you need all those lights?

A real long time ago, maybe in the last part of the 19th century, we had a new toy. It was called fog lights you put on the front bumper, for when you had bad weather. We also had a dimmer switch that you could dim your headlights for oncoming traffic that we do not use today.

Today we have four headlights that are on most of the time. You know what? They blind the oncoming traffic. Just remember this winter when you are going or coming in the De Beque Canyon. Or maybe some late night going home. Do you really need those extra lights in town? Do they really help you or are you just blinding the oncoming traffic?
