Fogging over

To the Editor:

Who’s responsible for this?

In the past number of years, cars have been using a plastic lens to cover the headlights. After a few years, these lenses begin to fog over, causing the lights to get dimmer and dimmer. There are some products on the market that are supposed to remove this and make the lenses look like new. I have tried this product without any success.

But I finally get the fog off. It was OK for about a month, and then it came right back, and I had to do it all over again. It took about 20 minutes on each lens.

I think that the carmakers should be responsible for correcting this problem, or someone should. Some time ago, carmakers came out with a third headlight and it would rotate with the steering wheel. Someone in authority said that a car can have only two headlights. But it can have fog lights, and they had to be yellow or amber.

It’s a safety issue for the seniors. Some lights are too bright and some are too dim, and some are too many.

Some of the seniors whom I know are deciding to try not to drive at night because they don’t know what’s coming at them.

Some laws and rules are made to be kept, and some are just made for the fun of watching them just fade away.
