We came across this post on the LotusTalk.com message board the other day:
“Driving home tonight I was beside a guy in a lifted truck for a little while, and he ended up behind me at a red light, and to my amazement, right when he stopped behind me he turned his headlights off so he wouldn’t blind me. Turned ’em back on when the light turned green and we started to take off. I was very surprised. Even normal trucks can blind you, but his would have been really blinding. Having the rear window tinted helps a ton. Anyone ever had anyone do this too?”
First, it’s impressive to see the owner of a Lotus giving props to a lifted truck owner. He could have easily assumed that as the owner of a Lotus, this is the treatment he deserved. But instead, he posted online his appreciation. Remarkable. Second, we were surprised to see some other Lotus owners agree. Is there an unwritten rule that when a lifted truck is driving behind an $80,000 sports car that you turn off your lights? Whether it’s mutual respect or just co-incidence, it’s a great thing to see. Here’s the link to the message board.
