I get so sick of getting hi-beamed!

Does anyone else have this problem...I get so sick of getting hi-beamed by other on coming cars. I always have my driving lights on (which any moron knows can't be on with hi beams) My lights are aimed properly, its just nippleheads that don't like projector lights!! grrrr...

the weird thing is...i'll have my low-beams on when there's an oncoming car and they still think i have my highs on and flash me...i've gotten it a lot and it's not cause there is something ahead...

PIAA rule thumbsup

when people are tired, most headlights look bright spineyes

what difference does it make if people flash you anyways - its not like you will see them on the road again after you've already passed them rofl

just ignore those people and keep on your way...

it must be different when you live in the middle of nowhere spineyes

In Los Angeles, I'd say that most people are are pretty much usta seeing just about every type of light... EVERY DAY.

Besides, most of our streets are usually 2 lanes and our freeways are between 4 and 8 lanes wide... if they are riding your bumper, then you either get out of their way, or they will find another way to pass you wave

A couple months ago I was following this lifted Dodge Ram on my way to work at 5a.m. on a pretty rural road, straight for about 10 miles, I was not tailing him close. All of a sudden he slams on his brakes and stops. So I stop behind him thinking he saw a deer and panic stopped. He just sits there for a minute or two, so I thought "maybe he dropped his cigarette or something" so I go around him. As soon as I get next to him, he comes over and tries to hit me!!! So I jump on it and he tries to keep up with me!!! Of course his truck will only do 100 so I lost him but I'm thinking WTF what kind of psycho was that?? Only thing I can think of is maybe He thought I had my highs on him or something. WTF??

When people flash me I just turn on my high beams and leave them on. It makes them feel stupid and it's not like I'm ever gonna see them again.

I'm gonna take your little Civic. Dust it off. Turn it sideways and stick it straight up you candy A*s.

I know for the Domestic version of teh Celica we all have these like 2 little circle like holes each in our projectors. I'll try to get a pic to show you.

Because of those holes it helps lighten up the signs on the road. Ever notice how much brighter the signs are driving the celica as compared to some other cars..? grin

JAPAN
The states doesn't realy have any respect upon drivers...

I'll be on the road and slow down to let someone go in front of me by flashing my lights at them, but they'll just sit there staring at me. In Japan, flashing your lights means "Go ahead" and it's a sign of respect.

If there's an accident on the highway and the speed decreases really fast, I'll put on my hazards to let those behind me know. In Japan, every person that sees the hazard lights on will put their hazards on...Then those behind them will know what's going on and repeat the process.

I guess this isn't Japan...

i get the same problem with ppl high beeming me. i do admit that my stock lights are pretty bright but some ppl r just ignorant like that and they have to leave their high beams on to blind me. whenever that happens i just turn on my foglights and highbeams and wave while i watch their whole car light up and i see them covering their faces. rofl

HID's dont bother me... its the trucks that pull right up behind you and blind the shit out of you that annoy me.
Yeah, I hate is when stupid trucks come from behind, it very annoying.. I accelerate, they can't catch up thumbsup. I also hate when truck come from the opposite lane.. their light are so high that are pointing right in my face, that is also annoying.. I wish I had missiles and just blast them. That will teach them! tongue

If there's an accident on the highway and the speed decreases really fast, I'll put on my hazards to let those behind me know. In Japan, every person that sees the hazard lights on will put their hazards on...Then those behind them will know what's going on and repeat the process.

I guess this isn't Japan...





They should do this here in the US I think that would be a good idea... eh?? thumbsup
