I generally get bitten by the washers at dawn or dusk, when the lights have turned on, and you don't realize it. It would be nice if they could be disabled.

They do work well keeping the salty muck off the headlights in the winter. I might be solving the wrong problem, however. I might be better off ditching the headlight washers and moving to SoCal.
