You need to get those stupid, dangerous bright lights off the road. Not all of us have perfect eyes. Even a small cataract causees a loss of sight and these lights make it much worse. Check with an ophthalmologist and they will tell you the same thing. My friend here in poortland Oregon just got back from minn. & wis. And he was mad as hell about the bright lights he had to contend with. So why are you people worried about after the fact on the accidents. Why don't you get these unsafe things off the road. You need to force a system on vehicles that they can only go so fast according to their weight. This stupidity about putting a sensor to tell the driver when he has a low tire is stupid at best. Why don't you force service stations to go back to service stations the way they were in the 1950S. I checked thousands of tires, coolent level, & just basic stuff under the hood as well as washed thousand of wind shields. The country has gone to hell if you ask me. The government has ruined alomst every thing they get involved in. Let us keep some of our money & we will do it our selves. Studebaker & kaiser-frazer were very safe vehicles but they were expensive for their day. You can't sell safety. I went to gogggle & put in dept of transportation. Found this site as no. One. Then wiggled around and found this site. It is way too hard to find. Rex R. bahr @ poortland Oregon U.S.aliens.
