Who taught YOU to drive?
A second look at headlights
Michael Flannagan, a headlight expert from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, and his staff estimate that about 2,500 pedestrians are killed crossing roads each year because headlights DON’T cast enough light for drivers to see them. “Glare is certainly a big problem for visual comfort in night driving. But the major safety problem is not glare, but rather a lack of light, even with the newer headlamps,’’ Flannagan says.
