Tail lights are critical this time of year

I am writing this to applaud the City of Whitehorse’s light display this year. City Hall and all down 2nd Avenue and all the other facilities are really decked out and it’s such a warm and inviting sight all over town. Kudos. Merry Christmas and Happy Rendezvous. Looking forward to seeing them until February.

I hope the distraction isn’t too much for all the “racers” on 2nd Avenue.

In these dark days (which start to go the other way on the 21st) it

would be appreciated if all Yukoners remembered that when you climb in your car and start it up that your headlights may come on (at a lower than normal illumination) BUT YOUR TAIL LIGHTS DON’T. In the darkness and the blowing snow times you are not being seen from behind

as well as you should be. Rear-enders aren’t always the fault of the one behind. Also please check that all your lights are working; lots of one eyed (front or back) monsters out there.

Cheers,

Florence Roberts
