Headlights

To the EA-ED driver on the Monash Fwy this morning at 1/4 to 6 - I doubt whether you could fit any extra lighting to the front of your car. You not only lit up the road in front of you - for 5 km - you also lit up the surrounding country side, and caused a jet to think it was on an approach at Tulla. I comfortably read the newspaper under the glare of your lights as you sat up my backside. You are an inconsiderate deadbeat and moron, and your car looks stupid.

Jeez I have people who don't know how to operate a headlight dipper switch. I do a lot of highway travel and these people suck.

Does anyone have a spare BA XR6T ute they want to give me

Appreciate your frustration Carolyn. Moron's who have out of alignment headlights are also wankers, so much for registration checks.

Don't get me started on the use of driving lights on low beam.

I don't understand why they think they "NEED" all those lights...

He's probably related to the mutant that drove the auto EA with the EB GT front and rear bumper (in primer) that sat up the clacker of our car yesterday...VERY lucky I was in a calm(ish) mood. The car was an embarassment and so was the driver. If it's a FF or E Series person..modify your driving habits buddy!

It's simple. Fit ultra bright lamps onto your boot or spolier and if some inconsiderate !@#$ is behind you and won't dip you just turn on your brighties and blind them. Problem solved!

A guy I know with an Explorer ( pic: http://eafalcon.com/otherfords.htm ) has all the lights in the world on his car, and he has actually installed a rear 'blinder' light for this very purpose as well!

Really shouldn't be necessary, but what to do? :dead:
