Hi Members,

What to talk about high beam and low beam. I had to drive last week in the early hours at 4 am. All my way till Villupuram from Chennai was dark. I was in a controllable speed. Almost 98% of the lorries/trucks were not having the back light. really it is dangerous for the speed drivers. I was wondering how the accident happens in the lane driving. Now I understand that this too is one reason. Why don't the police and RTO's check on the highways about this issues in the nights.

well i have tried some attempts at dim dip but once i was coming up this slope and one honda city which was coming down was in his dippers and not reducing the intensity.

I just too a sharp cut towards him and put on my dippers as i was in a bolero and the light is BRIGHT.
Worked out real well. But i usually tend to continuosly use the dippers to let the other person know.

Trucks do not have lights in the rear as it would reduce the power of the front headlamps. Also Even if you rear-ended him, he does not get injured. Unless you're driving an Arjun battle tank or something.
