Old news.  Was in the Telegram on Monday.  He's done.  He should be.  Caulkins isn't going to cut him any slack.

People, in general should concentrate on driving, not multi-tasking.  Multi tasking while driving is murder.  I have hands free but if someone calls and I'm driving, I don't answer anyway.  At my age, I have a hard enough time keeping it between the lines and watching out for other idiots.

I've quit driving at night unless absolutely necessary.

Old news?  You didn't post anything about it!

Before I had the surgery to remove my cataracts the doctor asked me 3-4 times if I had trouble driving at night.

I told him "no" every time and he kept saying "well you must be having trouble".  One of the technicians even commented one day that my cataracts were on the thick side.

I figured maybe after the surgery I'd realize that I could see a lot better at night but I didn't.  I still see just as good (or bad I guess) as I did before the surgery. 

The only part of driving at night I can't handle is driving straight through on a 20 hour drive to Florida (or I suppose anywhere).  Part of that is I can't drive as far between bathroom breaks.  That's been one plus on the camping trailer.  We can pull into a rest area way down away from the bathrooms where there is usually lots of parking.  One of us hit's the potty while the other one takes the dog for a walk and then we reverse and we're back on the road in fairly short order.

As far as seeing at night I don't see any difference from before the surgery.

I apologize.  I find it interesting that there are times when Monoe County stuff shows up in the Telegram that either never shows up in the MN or shows up days later.

My issue with night driving is the oncoming headlights on a 2 lane.  So many people with poorly aimed headlights these days and now there are the LED light bars that people buy and like to blind you with. I'd like to see them outlawed.  Says right on the box 'For offroad Use only' but that don't stop the idiots from installing them.  Very irritating.

I'm thinking hard about a set of KC daylighters for the truck so when an oncoming idiot cannot find the dimmer switch or had their LED light bar blazing away, I'll wait until they are about 100 feet from me and I'll light off the Daylighters...  That will get their attention as it BBQ's their eyeballs.

I can even deal with the HID's that I find somewhat irritating but not nearly as bad as an idiot with no dimmer switch or a wannabe LED lightbar.

People today are so inconsiderate of others.

Same here pretty well, I'm not at all comfortable driving after dark anymore.  Light diffracting from sand chip pits in the windshield to the glare from my glasses.

Around here, better off not driving after dark anyway.  Those bambi's can appear out of nowhere on country 2 lane roads.  hell on sheet metal.

Have either of you ever tried the yellow sunglasses for night driving. 

They seem to help some people.  Our son gave me a few pairs of them and I couldn't see where they did a lot except in town at night where there is a lot of light already.
