...And as the sky gradually darkened, I realized just how many drivers forget to turn their cars' lights on or keep at it with just their parking lights when it's nighttime.
It must have been 5 minutes into my 30-40 minute drive when it got dark enough that most people had their lights on, yet it slipped the minds of several others - I'd only ever expect just one or two people with their lights off. Seriously, when most cars I see on the roads around here are post-2000 MY, they probably have an AUTO setting that shouldn't be that complicated to use.
Oh, well. At least that there was that one '90's Chevy Blazer that made up for this lack of light by shining its high-beams (or really bright-ass low-beams) into my rearview mirror at one point.
