There is nothing more annoying than blinding bright lights in your face while you're trying to drive at night.

Is it just me or does it seem like fewer people these days are turning off their high beams for other drivers?

I don't know what's been going on lately but over the last couple of years, it seems like people just drive around with their brights on and could care less that it's blinding to other drivers.

Every time that I'm driving at night, some jerk comes at me with bright lights and refuses to turn them off. I don't know why it bothers me so much but it does. I think it's just the lack of respect that makes my blood boil.

Why Headlights Seem to Be Getting Brighter

According to Slash Gear, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says that 2020 was the first time all of the vehicles it tested came with an option for headlights that achieved a "good" rating. In order to so do, headlights need to either be brighter or aimed higher to illuminate the road farther ahead, meaning they're more likely to bother oncoming traffic.

I know vehicles have brighter lights than ever before but that's not the issue that I'm talking about. I mean I can tell the difference (usually) between high beams and low beams. I'm talking about people that are so freaking rude and care about no one else on the road but themselves.

It's one thing if you forget to turn them off, it's another when you're well aware and don't care. If this is suck.
