The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

State law stipulates when headlights must be turned on

Law, Safety, Wisconsin

According to state law, motorists must have their headlights on during the period beginning 30 minutes after sunset until 30 minutes before sunrise.


"To increase headlight effectiveness, you should use high beams whenever there are no oncoming vehicles because high beams let you see twice as far," said State Patrol Superintendent David Collins.  "But you must dim your high beams whenever you approach an oncoming vehicle within 500 feet, which is a distance of about one city block.  High beams also should be dimmed when you are 500 feet or less behind another vehicle or when traffic is heavy.  Low beams should be used when driving in fog, snow or heavy rain because the light from high beams will reflect off the precipitation and cause glare.  Don't drive with only your parking lights on.  Parking lights are for parking only."


A citation for failing to use headlights when required or failing to dim high beams within 500 feet of another vehicle will cost drivers $148.20 plus three demerit points on their record.

People sometimes look at something and say it must be this because that is what I think it needs to be.  Others look at something and say it is this because that is the way it has to be.  I seem to have a knack that people give me credit of things I don’t do, but they think I did.  That is fine.  I get way too much credit for others hard work and that is not fine.  While supporters in many causes have the identity lost in the cause I would just like to thank those in the shadows of a cause. 


While some wear the mask of anonymous others don’t.  While some cloak themselves others don’t.  This goes out to all Tom, Dick, and Harrys’ who fight for a cause.  This goes out to the average Joe or the Jane Doe.  This goes to those in the grey area and those who stand out.  This goes to defending what you think is right when others say it is not.  This goes out to the supporters and those who are distracters.  This goes out to those who stand up and to those who prefer to sit. 


Thanks for the warmth of doing battle and thanks who don’t.  This goes out to those who stand by me and defend me.  This goes out to those who define their own way while seeing things differently.  While we will never all agree we can agree to disagree as reasonable people do.  While I cannot stop another persons action any more then I can change the day and night.  I can ask that those who do be respectful of others.


For once we are on different sides we might next time be on the same side.  For while we differed on an issue we were the same on the fight, just in opposite directions.  Again, a great big thanks goes out to those helping me and saying nice words and defending me.  A bigger thanks goes out to those defending the cause of whatever it may be.  I cannot and will not take the credit that is all yours.
