    new cars have brighter headlights however the operators are NOT brighter !
    I would like to see vehicles having an automatic dimmer set up as I have trouble seeing while blinded by these high intensity lights.
    to many window lickers out there have NO clue they are driving with the high beams on !!!!!!

    It's amazing some of the factory LED systems are DOT legal. Damn they're blinding.

      Often you come up on a car you think has the high beams on, flick the lights, and they respond with lights that would put the starship Enterprise to shame.

          I probably do a lot more night driving than you guys and I agree 10000%! People bright light my truck all the time, but I can’t see crap on dim, especially under street lighting. New pickups are the worse, you could light a stadium with some of them. No way could I stand them if I drove a low to the ground car, at least in the Expy and my pickup I’m above some of them. I used to hate the ones that were blue until you got right on them then they turned white, now it seems like the white ones are even whiter if that is possible. Between my glasses and a sand pitted windshield it makes for some interesting driving sometimes.
