After a rain has tapered off when are you more likely to shut the wipers off
When you hear rubber rubbing against dry glass?
When you notice nobody else has their wipers on?
When your left elbow feels dry?
When there's no more big puddles?
When you read the sign that says Turn Your Wipers Off?
When you look off into the distance and another big storm is heading your
Other: Please explain.

I use rain-x.  Rarely turn the wipers on but when I do, I turn them off the
next day when I start my car and notice they are on.

Other. It hasn't rained since I bought my Prius. On my Avalon Limited
the "Auto" function works so reliably that we have /never/ had to turn
the wipers on or off.

Incidentally, Maryland says "If the wipers are on, the headlights must
be on." I like it, though not everyone obeys. The other day I saw
(entirely by luck, and at the last minute before proceeding from a stop
sign) a black Mercedes SUV approaching an intersection in near darkness
and in rain with no lights on. Ask the driver and he/she will say "I
don't need the lights. I can see just fine." IDIOT! What about other
people seeing your stealthmobile!? Do other states require this?

Yes, quite a few.  The ones I know for sure are New York, California,
and Georgia, and I think I remember Virginia, too.  Oh yeah, it's also
law here in Florida, but it's gotten almost no publicity and,
apparently, only twelve of us know about it.
