[from Al Powell]

I sometimes use my driving lights as a visual beacon for them fools that
often populate the roads around here. Sort of a DRL to clear the fog out of
them hardy souls piloting out there in the haze. Like the SUV that pulled
right out in front of me car today. Them MetalMasters worked for that app.

But I only had my 9007's on. Dem Audidimbeams they didn't see.
