The lights are too bright.

Dear car manufacturers, law makers, customers...

I dont have a drivers license.. yet, but as a passenger I am still genuinely concerned that society is pushing the lights of cars to dangerously bright levels.

This is not a problem in daylight as everything is bright and only pillocks uses their fog lights in broad daylight but at night, where everything is dark. Everyone switches on their bright LED lights and its blinding, iritating and eyesight damaging. Truck drivers in India, who spend long hours driving at night have their eyesights ruined not because of phones but because of these bright lights.

Lets just get to the point. Can someone make a law that limits the brightness of car lights? because society and manufacturers will demand and make brighter lights because it looks cool.

Even I think LED lights look cool in their clean white colour instead of some 1990s yellow colour but the brightness is just too much.

  • Stock headlights today are brighter than aftermarket ones 10 years ago and then everybody was saying that those cars should be banned.

  • Less and less people are taking eye tests so I guess the increase in headlight brightness is the solution. Audi drivers must be super-blind or just closer...

  • I think the biggest issue is people drive with their brights on. I was recently in India and baffled as to why half of the drivers were driving with their brights on. Those are only for when no one else is around, and if the streets are lit, you especially don't need them. Otherwise people need to learn that your lights may have to be adjusted so they aren't pointed upwards at others. In the USA we have laws for this, but I don't know about other countries. Either way, too many people in India are driving with their brights on.

  • Way too bright. We have a 2019 LS500 and the normal low beams feel like they're on high beams when driving. Quite scary.

    • Yeah, if this trend continues, and I need to travel at night... I'm taking the bus.

    • We really don't need beams that allow us to illuminate the nearest city entirely goddammit.
