Automatic Lights – friend or foe?

One of the problems with a rental car is you are never entirely sure how it works…

This morning we awoke to snow for our drive south. No problem, however, the lights on the car did prove to be a bit of a challenge.

We wanted them on….

Automatic lights - are they on, or are they off?

But, as we were driving along they seemed to turn off as the car decided it was light enough not to have lights, but we wanted them on…

As the lights seemed to turn off and on, almost randomly, and we couldn’t work out what was going on from inside the car (when the dashboard was bright did that mean the lights were on or off?), we had no option but to pull over and actually get out of the car to check…

Checking if the lights are on...

So much for modern technology making life easier and safer…
