    LED headlights 1st Dec 17 at 12:46 AM
    Hey guys...

    To put in a LED white light as headlight in the car ? Would it just fit in where the standard bulb goes ? Or would it need a new led type socket ?

    What many people don't appreciate is that other people's eyes don't work as well as their own. As you age, your eyes are less able to focus well, especially in low light so are less able to cope with being dazzled.

    A good pair of glasses may help, just having well corrected vision will improve things.

    The other thing is to avoid the temptation to stare at dazzling lights, make a conscious effort to look away - the eye can be a bit of a magpie for bright lights and then you are left partially sighted while your eye recovers.

    The other part of headlights is that it is very easy to dazzle the car in front, and while many cars have automatic dipping rear view mirrors, dipping wing mirrors are rarer beasts and a light in the corner of your eye from the car behind can be very uncomfortable. If you can see your headlights lighting up the interior of the car in front, then they are set too high.
