....the gormless one's driving experience is being ruined by all these new cars with silly lights that are on all day. Enough!

I'd suggest two things.

1. In daytime, wear sunglasses.

2. At night, smash the headlights on offending car models.

How is it being ruined?

Thanks ....handy tips.

The gormless one has sensitive brown eyes and these daft lights cause him to squint and look away.

It's a directive from our European masters to have daylight running lights.

Could do without the ultra bright bulbs and the morons that drive around at night with only one working headlight though.

I'm all in favour of them. I got a caution once on the M42 whilst doing 60mph in the inside lane with my fog lights on, when it wasn't foggy. The reason: the car's headlights were rubbish.

Relax Dear.

The Gormless One makes a valid point and 'experts' (hated by the Gnome) agree with the wee man: http://www.opticianonline.net/high-intensity-headlights-dazzle-drivers/

These lights are a status symbol, a most excellent example of conspicuous consumption, only fitted to premium cars and then often as a £1,000 option. Can you get them on the IQ?

Was that the rear fogs?

Gordon Bennett,

No, the front fogs. The car was an early Astra, with rubbish main lights.

Dearest Kooks. The gormless one thinks (due to personal experience) these silly lights are fitted to ALL new cars...Smarts, C2s etc...

What's with all this fuss about lights on cars anyway? It's anon issue. Far more important is why I can't have a battery of RPG7 rocket launchers fitted to my car, so that I can blast every idiot who gets in my way (starting with a cyclist around Newhaven!!).

I own a car, and don't use it to either get to work or commercial districts. I own a bike too, and don't use that to get to either.

I guess i must have vehicles for no reason. Silly me.

Same here (except a bike).

I wonder a slave of what my father has been with a non-capitalist car... (he didn't use it to go to work and forget about shopping)

I don't know why more people don't pay more attention to the colour of their cars. No doubt this will seem like a womanish thing to say, but there are too many cars on the road that are shades of grey or white, or black, or various dull colours which don't show up too well at junctions when natural light is poor. Red is a good colour, yellow if you can stand it, or my current vehicle which is a kind of dark metallic turquoise. It shows up fairly well in a car park so it must have good visibility on the road.

Gars; So you are a 'petrolhead'? Internal Combustion Engines with attractive frames surrounding them fascinates you, yes?

Garscadden says:
Not at all, a car (and bike), is a means to an end. I like visiting pretty places, at a certain point walking to them just got too slow.

Phew, want to try more assumptions about people, and see if you can get something even a little bit right?

I was reading reviews of cars some while back, including ones by Jeremy Clarkson and everyone knows what he is like. I found I was getting distracted about which car would be me by his analysis, ie. did I have a pert behind, or was I a bit stiff in the middle? Crazy!

Spin says:
Gars; Why not use public transport to visit the places that thrill your rarely displayed aesthetic side? As with all things, like the majority of the population, you want it asap. Well, the appreciation of beauty involves the journey in order to appreciate the sight itself, my friend.

Spin,

'Don't buy cars.'

Why not, I like my 300bhp trusty steed. Useful for all sorts of things other than displaying my capitalist slavery. LOL.

Spin can't drive, hence suffers from jealousy, as simple as that

David; By all means pollute the environment. As long as there is some logical reason to do so...
