Sometimes, heroes have headlights

“What was that all about?” I thought.

As I was driving to work, a car coming in the other direction flashed its lights at me, and I had no idea why.

After all, it was a little after 8 a.m., so it’s not like the driver could be flashing the universal symbol for “You have your high beams on.”

Unless it was that other universal signal … .

As someone who likes to cruise along country roads without always worrying about such things as speed limits — if the weather’s good and I’m in the mood, the roads where I grew up are like my own Circuit of the Helderbergs — I always have to be on the lookout for well-placed police cars.

Like the one a couple hundred yards past where I got the signal.

Fortunately, I had slowed down by that point.

Thank you, random flasher of headlights.

  1. We’ve flashed people going the other way, meaning either “cop ahead,” or “icy road ahead” or more likely these days “SLOW DOWN!” So many speeders out there, but if they see our headlight flash, at least they may slow down “just in case.” 🙂
