Vehicles with extremely bright headlights cause a danger to other drivers. I am not talking about drivers with their high beams on, I'm referring to regular headlights that are unusually bright. I was almost in an accident on the 405 freeway last night because a driver behind me with bright headlights blinded me and I veered into the next lane because we were on a curve and I couldn't see well enough to stay in my lane. I have heard many of my friends compalin about cars with bright headlights almost causing accidents for them because the light can be blinding, similar to a flash bulb on a camera going off in your face in a dark room. These bright lights should not be legal for regular driving use, they should be used only in the same conditions that high beams are used.
