Misuse of the brights is, unfortunately, one of the most frequent violations of common driving etiquette that I've seen
during nighttime driving. Not only is it annoying, but it's also dangerous and completely unnecessary.
Unlike being a left lane bandit or failing to move over when turning,
where someone might not even realize that they are irritating other drivers, there is no excuse whatsoever for driving
around with your brights on all the time. Every car I've driven has a bright blue light on the dash that tells you your
brights are on, so it's virtually impossible to not realize you have them on. Basically, people who drive with their
high beams on are the ultimate assholes on the road, who clearly have no problem with the fact that they are blinding
both the cars in front of them and the traffic coming towards them.
This is another item which needs to be addressed much more often by the police. People who use
their high beams in the presence of other cars should absolutely not be allowed to do so unpunished, as it shows a
blatant disregard for the eyesight of other drivers.
