To the editors:
By now millions of true geniuses must have let Cecil Adams know the real reason one turns off the car lights [March 2].
Because if they turned off automatically they would turn on automatically. And everyone would drive all day with their lights on. Or--there would be a turn-off switch for days and we would be back to square one. Or--we could pay $50 or $100 for a sensor system that would turn them off in daylight.
Too simple to come to mind?

Cecil Adams replies:
Thanks for that valuable input, Perry. Now everybody can see what I went through when I talked to those mopes at GM.
