So driving home at night and getting flashed by somebodys brights now for the second time in a week, ive had a revelation....

Do you get flashed by a lot of cars? I've noticed recently a lot of people are flashing me with their brights as to warn me about something. Since I have the red vinyl tint on my lights the center part of them are red but don't actually light up, Stock OEM they are clear and don't light up. Funny that people think the lights are out when they really aren't. Hopefully a cop won't think the either I can imagine having to explain this and show pictures on my phone to validate it.

Anyone else have this happen to them?

No, but if I don't run with my foglights on everyone always thinks my highbeams are on....
I've been flashed a lot lately too... Oh, you meant headlights... ;)

Maybe they're just telling you to get out of the way?...

Good point. Are you on the interstate doing 50mph in the fast lane?
Nah, he isn't in PA. That's mostly a PA thing I think.

It has something to do with how PA is glued on to the side of the earth. It causes all of the cars to slow down and pull to the left.
you forgot to mention that it also causes cars to slow to 20-30 when approaching a tunnel

Maybe they are just acknowledging that you drive an awesome car?

Amusing, but my headlights are properly aimed, and I hate when people run HID's in reflector housings. Proper bi-xenons are in the works, but never improper HID's. Also, I'm glad you've all noticed how ridiculous the drivers in my state are. I was beginning to think it was just me who hated drivers from this state....

Nope, not just you...anyone who has driven in PA knows most can't drive, or can't pay attention while they drive.

It is kinda funny, if you travel around to different parts of the country you will see that there are bad drivers everywhere, but each area seems to have trends, and oddly, the trends seem almost confined to stae lines?
