No matter where you’re driving at night, there’s always headlights in your eyes. We have drivers who drive with the high beam on at all times (at night).
So last night I decided to try on my dark glasses while driving - at night. Since I wear specs, I had to wear the dark glasses over my specs. This reduced the glare of the oncoming headlights to an acceptable degree. It also reduced visibility of speed-breakers, pot holes, and the like. And it made me look like an idiot, but that’s already covered in the IIDU thread.
So my questions:
Is there a law that prevents a driver from using dark glasses at night ? Assume your local area.
Is this a sensible thing to do ? I drive long distances every weekend (200 miles or so) and the headlights really bug me, and sometimes give me a headache.
Have you tried this ? Ever been pulled over by LEOs ? How did you plead ?
Are there any other practical solutions to reduce oncoming headlight glare ?
Somewhat related: Are there contact lenses with built-in tints for purposes of blocking sunlight ?
My experiment lasted only a few minutes, so I thought I’d come over here and get your expert opinions before thinking of doing this again.
