New Lights Causing a Bother…
Category : Driving Safely
Following on from last month’s blog about driving with low sun, another problem for drivers is becoming apparent – the issue of very bright headlights on cars! Manufacturers are putting incredibly bright lightd on their cars to try to look great for their customers, but in actual fact, many drivers are being temporarily dazzled by the brightness of the lights as they come into view. It can take some drivers a few seconds to regain their sight after being dazzled, which is of course a safety concern.
It has become such a problem that the British media have reported on the growing issue of lights being so bright that they cause accidents and issues for drivers. Something we can do to prevent our lights being so dazzling is to check that they are angled correctly. Headlights should be dipped away from the centre of the road to allow less dazzling for opposing drivers.
