Save the high beams for when you're not close to other traffic and put your efforts into identifying threats before they can violate your right of way.

I go to the trouble to appear literate here and would appreciate it if you at least leave that part as it was when quoting me.

It's part of the anti-shouting filter on BARF. It's like an old man zealously guarding his lawn from "those darn kids".

They don't seem to work consistently either, and where's the edit button?

Regarding the use of full beams during the day, a podcast the other day mentioned there are five generations driving today. A first. Its not uncommon for drivers born before the mid-60s to start to have cataract surgery. Its a very commonplace, affordable, quick and low-risk procedure. And while it literally clears the vision, the light passing through the artificial lense is amplified to 11. Reflection off surfaces, other windscreens, misaligned headlamps and high beams cause discomfort and partial blindness. Food for thought.

I had cataract surgery in both eyes a few years ago. Highbeams during the day haven't been an issue for me. The only bight light that can be problematic (during the day) is the sun.

I haven't had eye surgery, and yet the sun can still be problematic.
