Windshield wiper law

Postby Crystalis on Fri Jan 13, 2006 7:05 am

Huh, California must be behind the times. I thought ya'll set the precedent and then the rest of the country moved that way if it proved popular? At least, that's what I hear every time I read about that proposed tax per mile drive vs gallon of gas crap that is brewing that way. I know Arkansas has had the headlights on while wipers are on law since around 1997 or so - I was in yearbook in high school and helped someone come up with a title to a story about that law in our yearbook.

Under Republicans, man exploits man. Under Democrats, it's just the reverse.

It must be a sign of the Apocalypse when Danny is the one making the most sense.
I used to think I was a child; now I think I am an adult -- not because I no longer do childish things, but because those I call adults are no more mature than I am.

I think California is usually a trailblazer in the same way as is a hiker that hires sherpas to set up advance camps. The rest of the world often follows our "groundbreaking precedent" when we try it second--after it proved successful in some small, forgotten state (with the exception of anti-smoking laws, maybe--we can claim firsties on that one). I always hear on the news when California tries some "bold, new law" after it proved successful in Delaware or Oregon or something, and then the rest of the country follows.
