For a couple of years, for some reason, I’ve been noticing burned out headlights. It seemed like headlights were burned out a lot, and usually the drivers side (left in US). Another “Dull Club” friend of mine suggested doing a survey to see what the “truth” really was.In January of this year I started keeping a record. I immediately noticed that headlights were not burned out as often as I thought, so I decided to do only 50 vehicles.
It took over 2 months to do the 50 vehicles. As it turned out, the “truth” was a lot different then I thought before keeping track.
The results were: 29 drivers side (left), and 21 passenger side (right). or 58% to 42%. Interesting how the “facts” show a different “truth” then we think.
What an idea [exclamation point removed] This is really useful facts. And also safe excitement. (Well, if you sit in a cafe and watch the road.) As soon as I saw the headline I was thinking: Yes, I have noticed burned out lights on the drivers side. And what do you know [exclamation point removed] Somebody made a research on it [exclamation point removed] Thank you very much. (Smily-face)
There seems to be inherent incentive that could prompt someone to repair a driver’s side light sooner than a passenger’s side. I’d be curious to ask what bothers someone worse: drivers’ or passengers’ light out. Curious, but not enough to take action and risk unnecessary excitement. This survey was sufficient enough to satisfy.
