    Despise them. That said. When you cant beat em, join em. People suck. This lack of courtesy is getting out of hand. I went from sealed beams being blinded by every misaligned led having company truck / ### hat with offroad lights .... to a set of JW Speaker led projectors. My dims will not blind anyone, they are aimed correctly. My brights will mess up your world. Only people that tend to hit me with brights are said ### hats with misaligned leds or offroad lights

    I get in front of some trucks, even with my pickup truck and I can’t see. Idiots should be put out of service until the lighting is corrected. Trucks should have the lights lowered to the bumper.

    Speaking of ### hats, you also have the ones with a burned out low beam, so they just run with their brights on to “fool” the cops.

    Just have to change your style of driving.

    On a 2 lane road I watch the right line when on coming traffic has super bright lights, personally my eyes are fine as long as I keep my eyes down to the right.

    When someone is coming up behind me I adjust myself in the chair to move the light or just adjust my mirrors.

    Back in the day I had a bad tendency to look at lights to see what kind of vehicle it was, not so much anymore.

    Led light bars are worse than cancer. If the front of your truck needs look like a night game at Fenway for you to see, then you need to stick to day shift.

    I despise drivers using fog lights when there is no fog. It also shows unprofessionalism.
