Just about pulled out in front of a car with lights out early this morning.
Not even parking lights. A few seconds earlier...
Why do these people drive with lights out? Save gas - engine runs easier
without generating electricity for lights? Seems I've seen many more of
them in the past year for some reason.
Breeding more of them in your area too?
Sorry to bother you all. Had to vent somewhere.
You know it's time to clean the refrigerator
when something closes the door from the inside.

This can't be much of a problem anymore, can it? The vast majority of
cars on the road now have daytime lights on, ie if the car is running
the lights are on. Not sure if it's a law though.
Probably should be though.

I see you have .ca email address. AFAIK, DRLs were required in Canada
long ago, but on our Canadian-built '02 Chrysler 300M DRLs weren't even

They were not an option in "export" vehicles in 02 because some idiot
states still had laws on the books making them illegal, apparently.
At least on an Canadian built US market vehicle all you need to do is
plug in a module to make them work and make them legal for importation
Many US built "domestic market" vehicles require a real bodge job to
get DRLs working to make them legal to import into Canada (along with
things like having to replace the inferior-spec bumpers etc).It used
to be quite a few US vehicles could not be imported into canada at all
because they could not be brought up to Canadian spec, but most of
them are now over 15 years old and allowed in. There are still some
that cannot be brought in - like 2005 2wd Jimmy/Blazer, any Lotus
other than 01-04 esprit,, Mercedes CLK63 Black Series or S500 Guard
Package, Tesla Model S, some Masaratti and McLaren, and quite a few
Saleen, Shelby and Roush Mustangs (if converted after sale - not
purchased from Ford as finished vehicles) and van conversions not done
by a recognized list of converters.

Easy way to be charged with tax evasion - plus most likely driving
with no insurance since you cannot insure an american licenced vehicle
You have 6 months if visiting, and a couple weeks after importing to
change the registration.
Bringing a car across the border to stay without geclaring it is also
Bad Jiu Jiu if you get caught.
The Americans don't "trust" the Canadians any more than the Canadians
"trust" the Americans, but it doesn't come down to "trust" - it comes
down to "regulations"
Does your mommy know you are using her computer?
Different safety requirements. Who is to say the USA is right????
Canadian safety standards tend to be higher than USA standards for
many things. We are 2 different countries - with 2 different legal
systems, 2 different sets of laws,
Says the Brit - where they still drive on the "wrong" side of the road
and have kept their currency (instead of adopting the Euro like the
rest of the "European Community" they are otherwise part of.

They're tooling up for the Brexit. Maybe. I feel sorry for the Danes
trying to figure out what the Brits will do next. They only joined the
EEC because the UK did and aren't the most enthusiastic EU members.
They're still using the krone rather than the euro too.
