Do you dip and dim your headlights on a night ride?

Often I have noticed people negligent to use the dip and dim switches.It is very difficult to have a better view of the road despite the gazziness of the vehicle infront of you,in the nights.I wonder why those people don't have the basic sense to do that,so to avoid accidents.is it pure ignorance or irresponsibility?Have you faced any difficulty on your night drives?Please share.

Here in Italy it is illegal to drive with full headlights in built-up areas. If the police are about and they see you they will stop you and fine you for doing this. This rule was brought in as an attempt to stop the abuse by some drivers who just do what is good for them without thinking of the others on the roads

Even here in India,it is advised to paste black stickers exactly in the center of the glass so that the opponent driver will not have any problems.But it is not followed properly.And the private bus owners and luxury car owners have too much number of headlights by which they get their ways ignoring the ordinary people.This is continued with bribery.Shame to say.

I don't really like to drive at night because I have conflicting issues with my glasses where I can't see properly. So, usually when I'm driving at night I have my headlights on high beams because I want to make sure that I can see, but as soon as I see another car coming I take off the high beams because I'm afraid of blinding them and causing some type of accident. I also take them off when I'm driving behind someone because I know that the glare in their rear view and side can also blind them and cause issues. So, that's how I drive at night, and I hate it when people mindlessly blind me especially when they noticed that I took off my high beams for them.

That is how I do it too. I have problems driving at night and those others make it very difficult, especially for those of us who wear glasses
