This is a protest against blinding auto headlights. Years ago motorists were cited for glaring headlights. Today that law is not enforced. Observe night driving on any major thoroughfare. One out of 20 cars have unusually bright headlights, which could result in accidents. About one in a 100 even have all four headlights blazing. And nothing is done about it.
Do auto parts suppliers offer a choice of regular and extra bright lights?
The worst offenders: Cars with one light out or one dim defective light; then all the amperage flows into one blinding light.
