the blinding is not caused by the HIDs themselves... the blinding is caused by mis-aimed headlights.. headlights that are aimed parallel with the road instead of at a slight slant down. this blinding effect is even worse when you lift a truck because your just making your lights higher. if you aim them properly then you won't blind people but they will still be bright (more of an irritatingly bright versus actually blinding)
i aimed my headlights up to a more parallel level because it gives you more light farther out and every other car flashed me with there brights.. i aimed them back down and they stopped haha
