Are you seeing the whole road?

I got stopped by the police last night because my flashlight was at half-power. Specifically, my car had a headlight out. I couldn’t see the whole road, and the road couldn’t see much of me.

The officer wanted to make sure I knew, because people often overlook their lack of illumination. It’s easy to do. You can get by with one headlight, streetlamps mask the outage, or it’s not fully dark yet.

Travelers and would-be travelers: Are both your headlights working? Are you seeing the whole road? When one goes out, who can you trust to tell you?

(And hey, if you’re on a motorcycle, it’s even more important to keep that headlight shining…)
