As long as you have enough light to see, no lights are TOO bright and no surprises in the road (ie deer/animals) then it's fine
My biggest problem is around here cars seems to drive at night with their high beams on all the time, even when there is another car near by in front of you... they won't turn down the beams... so the lights at timeS are TOO bright.
People tend to drive with High Beams on in rural areas all the time. As Soon as I go upstate or to PA or parts of New England they always do that especially on dark forest roads near woods.
True, but the times I struggle with them most are
1) Driving on the edge of a neighborhood between a city and a town... there is poor lighting on the road but I've never needed high beams on that road (even when I was the only person there in pick darkness, normal beams are enough to see on the mostly straight road, next to a big neighborhood)... yet there always seems to be TONS of high beams on there.
2) Driving though main street of the town... it's surprisingly well lit for a town... and between it's stoplight after stoplight after stoplight, cars are always in groups in that area... there is absolutely zero reasons to have your high beams on, in this area and yet they do, because they forget to turn them off (I assume) or they simply don't care...
I sorta live in a rural area past two towns... there are high beams on once you get out of the towns... but those haven't bothered me... because cars are more spread out... and if they're close... they (normally) turn the high beams off there.... just not in town for some reason.
Sorry for the rant... I guess it's a pet peeve. It's something so simple, yet people don't do it.
Well I actually don't experience that in my area because once you leave a town it's immediately another town. It's hard to tell where one ends and another begins other than signage. Like sometimes I'm wondering "Am I still in Teaneck? no wait the welcome to Teaneck sign is behind me. Ny is one of the cities large enough to have other cities as suburbs, like Jersey City, Newark, White Plains, Yonkers, Fort Lee, etc and many of them have their own skylines too so If it wasn't for the hudson river you couldn't tell where the city ended either (even still the only reason I know I've entered Yonkers is the Empire City Casino marking the first building in Yonkers)
So that's why I brought up the examples above. Usually I expirience it when I have a long windy mountainous or hilly or farmy drive back to an interstate. The ones that stood out like this are Hershey PA, leaving the park and driving down some beautiful farmland (especially pretty in winter during the Christmas Candylane thing with all the little christmas lights and snow making it picturesque), Scranton PA which I go to for Roller Derby sometimes with its VERY big forest hill which made my breaks useless one time making stopping at lights really difficult, and the area behind New Paltz where another Derby venue is which has what I call a boomerang hill goes down SHARP turnaround goes back up. With blinding lights in your face that can be pretty unnerving.
The last place was by Vermont where it meets upstate NY which is both hills and farms (and very interestingly shaped mountains
I can't see to drive at night. It looks like traffic is coming in to the same lane, its like that when someone else is driving too.
I had LASIK and ever since then I find driving at night a bit tricky... There are halos around the lights...can get a bit disconcerting....
Come to one what....
It gets more difficult a you get older because your ability to see well in the dark goes down. It has to do the cones and rods in your eyes from what I read.
