# What would happen if you were traveling at the speed of light and you turned you head lights on?

DON'T TRY IT!

Funny question but if you were travelling the speed of light you would not be able to see the light or anything. Human beings aren't capable of that type of resolution. Plus, we can only see light if it reflects off of something. Since we are moving the same speed as the light we would travel too fast for the light to have time to reflect back.

Source(s): This is all b.s. to me but it sounds logical. I hated math in school but it pays the bills.

If you were traveling at the speed of light and you turned your head lights on, a deer would immediately be attracted to them and appear out of nowhere, hopping into your path. You would hit it, see it make that 'Oh shyte' look, kill it, say 'Holy crap! It came out of nowhere!'. Then, you'd have a nostalgic flashback of Disney's Bambi that you watched as a kid, feel kind of bad, and if you're a girl (or a boy who is in touch with his feminine side), you might even squeeze out a tear. After the remorse and guilt wear off, you progress to feelings of annoyance ('Why the hell do they DO that?!'), then start worrying about any possible damage that could have been done to your car. Next, you'd start feeling grossed out about the dead deer carcass you left in the wake of your light-speed traveling car. And this would all happen at the speed of light.

Perhaps this question will answer yours: If you are traveling 60 MPH and turn on your headlights, is the light leaving your headlights now traveling speed of light + 60 MPH?

Cpt. Spock would flip u off and tell you to get out of the warp lane!!

If you're going away from them, then nothing you'd never see them; but if you were coming at them it would get real bright until you passed me.

Nothing.

You'd just be wasting your batteries or fuel.
