Default Re: Super bright headlights - safety issues

irritates me to no end, even with one of the jokers behind me. My friend and I were driving and a guy pulls up behind me and turns on the brightest lights I've ever seen. We get to a stop sign and I waited until he was right behind me to yell for him to turn the fricken brights off. I was blinded just from my rear-view mirror reflection! No doubt the drivers going the other way had possible serious issues!

As a constant road tripper...I can tell you hands down, that I see poorly aimed lights far to often. They suck at night. I know I love my bright lights, and I don't want to blind anyone. So take your time and do it right. I also love to mess with people that pull up behind me and flash their lights for me to move over, when I can't lol But that's a story for a different day.

Sorry to veer off topic a little, but you know what else can be blinding at night, those LED light bars on Police cars these days.
Sure, you can see them from 5 miles away up the road, but get more than a couple of squads on the shoulder of the road with them flashing and seeing beyond them is difficult.

Probably not what is intended.

Do you think that becoming one of the people you're bitchin' about is contributing to the solution or the problem?

"Because, I want to be sure I have tail lights on also." Was my reply.
this is great!! there are so many IDIOTS here that do this, there's also dumb people that drive with their lights off or have the DRL on and i will be the nice guy and flash them, but even then they are still too stupid to know why im flashing them, so eventually i just give up and lay on the horn!! i love my 25000k's, they are easy on the eyes of oncomers and just as bright as real projectors...
