Knowing you, I am sure that you will do 1 trip now, and the other shortly after.

A question to all Western group of South Slavic languages speaking colleagues: what is a difference, if any, between jer, zato and zbog?

You can translate all three words as because, but I can't explain when to use which one...

jer - conjunction
zato - adverb
zbog - preposition

Autumnal Equinox

The summer is gone, and the darkness is approaching. The September equinox occurred about two hours ago, at 08:20 UTC.

The next equinox occurs in March 20, 2016, after 179 days. Because the Earth's movement on its orbit, the winter half of the year in the northern hemisphere is currently about 7.5 days shorter than in the southern one.

Remember to turn lamps on when it is dark and always when it is mandatory.

i use them through the whole year and i think that obligation would be really good (here we had it for maybe 2 years, and now we have them mandatory only in winter period (this year between 25.10. and 27.03.). however, i like using Osram Nightbreaker Unlimited, and using the day lights means changing the bulbs twice a year. and they are not cheap at all.

Since I drove in Hungary and Romania where it's mandatory to use day lights, I use them everywhere I go because for me this is a big safety improvement, this is much much easier to see the others cars on the road...

I have daylight LEDs anyway, so they are on all the time.
Also the light sensor is a nice touch, low beams switch on or off automatically (if I use the AUTO setting).

A common argument against headlights 24/7 in the summer is that motorcyclists and cyclists are less visible between all the lights.

I usually drive with headlights off during the summer and on during the darker 6 months of the year.

If you know the brand name of lightbulbs you are using, then they are wearing out too fast

That is true, but on the other hand, mandatory headlights is good to distinguish whether the car is moving or not. Something like in railways, when rolling stock acting like train has three headlights, locomotive doing shunting two headlights and occupied locomotive standing on track one headlight.

Mind you that it could be also the matter of car construction (humidity inside lightglass). I've been buying the same bulbs for vectra as I used to buy for ignis and they wear off in vectra earlier. It was a well-know fact I've read in many reviews.

no, no way, lightglass is dry as the desert. just google a little bit about that model of bulbs - they are made to give probably the best halogen light among all (beside Philips Bluevision), but that's the reason of extremely poor lifetime. simple as that, Osram also warns about it. in H7 variant they simply cannot last more than 7, maybe 8 months with everyday use.

this obviously can vary from country to country. here in HR shunting machines have one front light turned on.
also, I have noticed that in PL some trains have blinking frontlights while approaching the station (like in the USA)

I am not an expert. But during my ownership of Ignis (5 years) I changed bulb twice (per light). In January it will be 3 years since I've driving Vectra. I change the lights bianual basis.

I know. It was just an example. But I think the three headlights for moving train is standard. At least in Europe.
