Law requires headlights in inclement weather

I would think by now, driving in this everlasting Winter, that the average driver would have learned by now that they should slow down on snowy icy roads and turn your lights on, so we can see you coming, it’s foggy, snowy and rain, it could save your life.

And best of all it does not run up your home light bill.

Slow down, keep it on the road, tows are costly and time consuming.

Slow down, lights on and buckle up.
