My concern is plastic headlight lenses. The plastic lenses deteriorate to the point that they cloud over and become yellow, drastically reducing there effectiveness in lighting the roadway at night or during inclement weather. How did the auto makers convince the NHTSA that plastic lenses were safe " when did it become the vehicle owners responsibility to have to buy expensive kits, whose effectiveness is dubious at best, to try and keep their headlights bright enough to be safe " the only other alternative is to buy replacement lenses and for those without the mechanical ability, also have to pay to have them installed, only to face the same problem when the new ones become unusable. I understand that the auto makers save weight and money by not using glass but it is my firm belief that it the auto makers responsibility to deliver a safe vehicle to the driving public and that using plastic on headlight lenses is irresponsible and dangerous. This complaint addresses all auto manufacturers. I sincerely hope that the NHTSA is the right Agency to address this problem and that I might here back from you regarding any resolution that might be forthcoming.
