Harry Potter's Daytime Lights



I'm not a fan of daytime lights - another subject I've posted about before - perhaps why this quote caught my attention:

"Daytime running lights are a sort of Harry Potter cloak in reverse - many people assume they will provide a cloak of 'visibility'. Consequently many drivers feel they can be seen by everyone and so subconsciously take less care than they normally would."

Nick Brownrigg, chief exec. of the Masterlease Group, quoted in Roadsafe.

Nice to see a bit of common sense about the idiotic and pointless use of daytime lights.
