To the person driving the dark grey Volvo station wagon that passed Pierre’s Point around 8:30 a.m. on Oct 31st:

You are no doubt oblivious to this, but you almost T-boned my car this morning.

It would have been on the driver’s side and I could have been seriously injured or even killed.

I was about to pull onto the highway and I couldn’t see you because you did not have any lights on.

It was raining heavily, in dull light, with lots of vehicle spray, and your car was virtually invisible.

I am a defensive driver and look two or three times before I pull out, and fortunately realized there was a vehicle coming at me just before I drove out in front of you.

A couple seconds later, it could have been a very different story.

Sadly, between Pierre’s Point and Sorrento this morning I saw four vehicles with no lights on.

I can’t understand it.

To all of those people, I sincerely hope your luck holds out and you don’t injure someone, or worse, because they couldn’t see you coming.
