Really

I agree with you but it's because of European legislation:

And utterly unecessary.

Do you have difficulty seeing that 2 ton van in perfect day light?

Nope!!

Have to agree here.

"Have you brought your own bags?"

"Why?"

"To cut down on waste plastics"

 

ALL the food is swathed in the stuff !!!

and if you haven't got your own bag they give you a bag that is so small you can only fit an apple in it so you need 20 bags to get your shopping home

Nope!!

In the winter months when the sun is low and quite often blinding when driving the day time running lights come in very useful, I find anyway.
