“By law, you are required to turn on your headlights if it’s raining in Sweden” (joke)

Sometimes there is a local law requiring that a car’s headlights be turned on when it’s raining. A joke about this was posted on Twitter by Roy Beale on March 7, 2015:

“By law, you have to turn your headlights on when it’s raining in Sweden. How the hell will I know when it’s raining in Sweden??”

The March 2015 joke probably originated on Sickipedia, but there is at least one earlier version that did not involve Sweden. “By law you have to turn your headlights on when it’s raining in Florida. But who’s going to let me know when it’s raining in Florida?” was posted on Twitter on April 16, 2013.
