Worse, however, is the hazard such lights create for oncoming traffic. Even dipped headlights dazzle, and the glare from a stream of vehicles can be overwhelming, making less well-lit objects, including cyclists and pedestrians, virtually invisible.
Any benefit such lights may give to drivers behind the lamps must surely be outweighed by the stress caused to those travelling in the opposite direction, and the danger to all who may be hidden in their wake.
