Headlights a glaring problem for older drivers
Warren White of Danvers will be 79 in a few weeks, and like a lot of senior drivers, he has real issues with headlight glare. After hearing White’s complaint, I figured he was talking about Xenon headlights, those stunningly bright, bluish-tinged lamps usually found on higher-end cars. But he said he’s had problems with other headlights, too, so I promised to investigate. Are car headlights brighter than ever? What causes bad glare? And why do older drivers have such problems with oncoming lights?
