<pet peeve mode> I hate this! Freaking idiots think that they can scrape a
small hole in the ice on their windshield and go off on their merry way...

The other thing I hate is cars *designed* to catch snow in front of the
headlamps...older Camaros, Integras, many small American cars, etc....all
have their headlamps recessed into bodywork that acts as a perfect snow
*scoop*. Then of course nobody ever cleans them...

I put Euro lamps with wipers/washers on my Volvo...it's amazing how much
difference in lighting you get after a quick swipe with the wipers...in
fact downright scary. Driving along, you simply don't realize that you're
gradually losing your lighting.

The Land Rover that replaced my Volvo has a high pressure spray...wish my
Audi had come with this package. I've thought about adding it, but I'd want
to do the Euro lamps *first*...
