It was 9:15 a.m. Thursday and another winter snowstorm was sweeping across the metro. The sky was getting dark, triggering street lights to come on. Yet, countless number of vehicles could be seen whizzing down Dodge Street without headlights on.
Strangely, a number of them were dark-colored vehicles.
Aside from the occasional red light runner, in particular one at 72nd & Dodge, vehicles without their headlights on pose a safety danger to other drivers in adverse weather conditions. According to the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicle driver’s manual, headlights should be used whenever you have difficulty seeing other vehicles or when windshield wipers are in use, such as we saw Thursday morning.
