I am so fucking sick of idiotic vehicle design ideas being mandated
by government.

A good example is "daytime running lights". This moronic design
tends to cause many drivers to forget to switch their lights on when
darkness falls, because the daytime running lights make these drivers
think their headlights are already switched on when they are not switched
on. The result is cars driving in the dark with NO TAIL LIGHTS.

Fuck the government and all its "we will make the world safe for you" bullshit.
More often than not, the end result is worse than if nothing had been done.


Where I live the mandated "daytime running lights" includes the tail lights.
