Thats what they did where I'm from.

If the light are really affecting you, glasses may be in order. They were for me.

I'll join those others who wonder how in hell the DOT ever approved those super-bright, bluish white, high intensity halogen headlights.
IMO, they are a dangerous distraction that never should have been approved for use on the road. If I didn't know better, I'd believe that
some administrative fat-cat got his palm greased in the deal.

I live in NH but work in MA - the high beams are on in the cars that are coming up BEHIND me on the expressway ! Explain that ! ? I don't understand why, with a "sea" of red lights in front of them, they can't find their way and need high beams !!
