For some while I have been courteously flashing my headlights at drivers of a certain well-known Swedish motor car, who travel with their side-lights on during the day. This has provoked mixed reactions ranging from cheery smiles to angry red faces and even a few well-known “Churchillian” waves.
I now find to my everlasting damnation that their side-lights come on automatically with the ignition.
Dare one assume that in their next model the manufacturers will achieve the ultimate: whereby the brakes are applied as the ignition is switched on and their fine, well-built motor cars will never leave the factory.
