Letter: Turn down those headlights

Editor:

As a motorist who uses a car for work, I’m finding it more and more difficult getting around at night, when I am literally blinded by aftermarket HID (high intensity discharge) headlights.

Aftermarket HID bulbs in a regular vehicle lens spread an intense beam too wide and into people’s eyes, causing dangerous temporary blindness.

Why are these permitted?
