[RC] The boy who cried wolf - Kitley, Carrie E Civ USAF AFSPC 30 MDSS/SGSLF

Kat said:  "They are there to warn people that you are stopping."

So . . . . isn't that the purpose of the ribbons?  To warn people?  You're 
making statements on the false assumption that EVERYONE in tarnation is going 
to put a ribbon on their horse just for the sake of having a ribbon.  LOL  
That's a little far-fetched.  It seems a person can't make a lighthearted 
statement around here without the respective nits being endlessly picked.

That's like saying vehicles that have red taillights will be
ignored and we should just ram into them anyway,
whether they stop or not.  

No, what it is like saying is that if people started installing brake lights on 
their cars that were on all the time even when they aren't braking, it wouldn't 
take long before other drivers started ignoring brake lights.  There IS a 
reason that the brake lights only come on when you are braking.  If they were 
on all the time, it would be like not having them at all.

They are there to warn people that you are stopping, and you don't get to put 
permanent brake lights on your car in the hopes that it will fool other drivers 
into thinking you are stopping even when you are not so that they won't tail 
gate.  And if got caught with brake lights like this on your car around here, 
they would give you a fix it ticket.
