"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Tail Light Warning

The project:
Flag down another driver in a parking lot to let her know her taillights were out.


Why bother?
As motorists, we're each responsible for maintaining our vehicles. That maintenance includes our taillights, which are tough to check if the driver doesn't have a second party to help her out, or a mirror or plate-glass window to use as such. When I tell other motorists about failed tail lights, brake lights, turn signals and backup lights, more often than not they're surprised and happy someone told them.

Worth it?
Yes. May have saved her a fix-it ticket, plus she'll be a lot easier (and safer) to follow once she fixes 'em.
