Update: the RX3 is now out as well. These go all the way up to 260W, so it wouldn't surprise me if WSDOT would start installing these if they issue a mass conversion. However, they're already using three different models for the most part.

Yup! In my area, in order to clear the backlog of driving test bookings, they decided to simplify the second road test (we have two road tests in Ontario) to eliminate the parallel parking, roadside emergency stop, and three-point turn component of the road test.  ::)

Just the other day someone U-turned in front of me, slammed on the brakes, and then proceeded to cut across 3 lanes of traffic to turn into a mall.  ::) :curse: Must have gotten his license from a cracker jack box.

 I think the biggest problem with drivers lately is that driver's ed. doesn't teach correctly anymore !   

 I was behind another car today that stopped before entering the empty roundabout and signaled with each change of direction while in the roundabout !

I noticed it too, a general race to the bottom mentality and the decline in customer service and amenities over the years both from the owners and from the employees. Also looking at the places where they closed the fitting rooms and washrooms "temporarily" for the past 4 years now.  ::)

Another thing I noticed is the general sloppiness of drivers now, stuff like turning in front of traffic, cutting across multiple lanes to make in into a plaza/highway exit, forcing your way in and slamming on the brakes to turn into a plaza, drifting in and out of lanes.

Usually pay and appreciation of profession has some relation to work motivation.

I would argue that it is not a lack of intelligence but severely shortened attention spans.

Today I found two 600w HPS lamps that have been pretty used. They where for free so it was worth picking them up.

Standard.  I've not installed any XL since before 2018. They are going EoL much quicker.  The Philips weak cathodes are not quite as bad on the newer tubes, surprisingly.  Not seeing mercury starvation quite as much on the GEs and Philips as they were prone to in earlier years.  They are just getting black ends quicker and going EoL.
