There is nothing more irritating to me than people driving around the city with their high beams on at night.

Am I the only one or are there others out there?

I wonder about all the people in my rural mountain county that NEVER use their high beams. Easy on coming traffic, but they rarely see that Elk standing in the road soon enough to avoid it.

There seem to be even more clueless people driving around in the city without their headlights on. In the old days you would know by looking at the dash and it'd be dark if your lights aren't on. But now with digital dashes, they don't have a clue even when you try to tell them they don't have their headlights on.

not as much as those with PnP HID or LED (or even some OEM LED) lights that blind even on low beam.

I've certainly noticed a decrease in drivers' main beam discipline over the past 2-3 years. Yes it is irritating, especially with modern headlights.

This and those who drive with their fog lights on when it is i clear night. Considered illegal in some countries due the the increased glare for on coming vehicles.

I wonder if the people with their highs permanently on are the same people that drive around at night with their dashboards on FULL BRIGHT, completely ruining any night vision they may have. Probably require high beams to see over the retina burning glare of the dash.

I have bixenons with auto high beams. Would be good when this trickles down to every car out there, Works pretty well, doesn't really get fooled except for the occasional street light at a low angle.

But they have to compensate for having only one headlight working.
