I am sick and tired of closing my eyes while driving at high speed because your department now allows passenger vehicles to blast oncoming traffic with 4 (four) headlights. I cite in particular the Ford Expedition where there is no difference between the upper 2 headlights and the lower 2 so-called fog lights. Sometimes, I will blast my own bright lights at these oncoming vehicles to let them see what their own lights look like. In response, the oncoming car or truck (mercifully) will hit their own bright lights which are less bright than the combination of their low beams and fog lights. I really don't understand how idiocy has crept into almost every department in federal, state and local government. How can you possibly think that it's ok to have *****double***** the amount of light coming from a vehicle than in the past. Technology is great but the human eye has not changed. You should review the studies from the middle of the last century to see how they came to the amount of light allowable under law back then. I'll bet they actually used logic in their decision. When, oh when will you morons ever make a correct decision? make the use of fog lights illegal unless there is actually fog or other inclement weather. Otherwise, you are just endangering the drivers of vehicles who are forced by you idiots to stare at this unreasonable amount of light proceeding from these newer vehicles. All you are doing is causing an increase in road rage and loss of faith in american government.

I am sick and tired of being blinded by both SUV and luxury vehicle headlights. Last week, I literally had to pull over on the side of a road to wait for my eyes to clear after being blinded by an SUV that also had halogen lights. My only solution now is to drive slowly, hoping they will pass me as I keep my eyes to the right side of the road (not feeling very safe in the process). I've already had one car totaled by an unfair-height collision with an SUV..I don't want to lose not only my car but my life next time one of those egoists takes a joyride.

The high intensity discharge lights and the bright lights on SUV's are very unsafe.
