LED Car Lights

When Audi put super bright LED lights on the front of their cars I was really impressed. They looked cool and were possibly a good safety feature.
Then everyone got in on the act. Citroën, Porsche, VW and the other day I swear I saw a KIA with these lights.
Now I’ve changed my mind. They aren’t cool. They are annoying. Always on and too bright if these lights were the reason you bought a car then get your head examined. They are the automobile equivalent of a snake shaped belt buckle.
I’m not convinced of any safety argument either. If manufacturers want lights on all the time because they know that most drivers can tell when to flick the switch then change your name to Volvo.

I am writing

Two minor things that annoy me are symptoms of my inflexible understanding of language. I will talk about negative questioning, which troubles me, another time but for now here are two main methods of starting a letter:

Dear Sir,
I am writing to inform you that the programme you showed . . .

Dear Sir,
I wish to inform you that the programme you showed . . .

Both of these annoy me. In the first case it is obvious you are writing so there’s no need to state that. Just start by saying

“I found the programme you showed the other night rather sexless”.

The second method of starting a letter would have me reply

“you can wish all you like but you won’t get it”.

I do understand that language is fluid and evolves but we could always force a correction in usage if we insist on decent use of the English language.

I must be on the spectrum somewhere but I don’t interpret language literally it just annoys me when people are inaccurate.
