    IF YOU ARE DRIVING TODAY

    Please turn on your headlights. People in 4wd's think they own the road today and drive reckless with no headlights.

    I'm not sure what the connection between 4wd and head lights is, but yes, headlights are a good idea on days like this.

    Re: IF YOU ARE DRIVING TODAY

    I got a better idea. Clean the snow off of your head lights and tail lights. Also, here is a good idea, clean the snow off of your windows.

    In California, it's against the law to not have your headlights on if it's raining and/or snowing. It seems like common sense, but you never know.

    And turn your defrost on to keep them that way.

    That's also law in Minnesota.

    As far as I know in Iowa the rule is that if your wipers are on then you headlights have to be on.

    Re: IF YOU ARE DRIVING TODAY

    It's also a law that you shouldn't drive in the left lane unless you're passing. We see how that works out.

    Yes all people with 4wd drive bad on snow and ice. It is only those with 4wd that drive bad.

    On a side note if you dont feel safe driving over 30 mph on the interstate maybe you shouldnt be on the road.

    Perhaps if you've run into 6 people today then the problem isn't with their lights
