Are you talking about those new high energy silver headlights? If so, I agree they are really glaring...(y) People that use those don't care about the other people on the road on the other side, IMO...(n)

The main thing is, IMO, that people take care of themselves and don't care about anyone having to come from the other direction...(n)

The blue HID lights are especially horrible (bluish ones). Not necessarily the OEM ones that come on high-end vehicles, but the aftermarket ones. Sure, they're great for the driver of that car, but for any oncoming traffic they're downright dangerous. Even low beams look like high beams, and the glare is horrible. I really wish they would be outlawed.

Too many people seem obsessed with using their high beams all the time, too. I drive highways with no tree cover on bright full moon nights and so many people apparently don't think lows are enough, even though I see very little difference on mine because it's bright enough outside to begin with. ...and, of course, it takes them quite a while to realize they should turn them down for oncoming traffic.

...or the people who drive without any lights on in heavy rain. 90% of them don't seem to understand why I flash my lights at them.

Of course, I could dedicate pages and pages to all the things people do when driving that irritate me (don't go 15 under the speed limit and act shocked and angry when I take the first available opportunity and pass you, don't try to merge into a lane at a toll booth and cut everyone because you didn't want to choose one 500 feet back, don't try to change lanes 50 feet before a stop light...you should have thought ahead...that's why the lanes aren't dotted now...).

I didn't think they were, but did a quick search and it seems like aftermarket ones might be. If that's the case in MA, they sure don't enforce it!

I wonder if they're similar to fishing glasses. I have a pair that allow me to see into the water on the rivers up here. They take out the glare of the water's reflection of light. :cool:

Those would be polarized lenses ... It's the polarization, not the color

Besides the advantage when fishing ... I wore them while flying a glider.
If I rocked my head, Sometimes I could see the thermals and didn't have to go hunting for them.
