Dangerous headlights

May 28, 2019


Though Mysuru City Traffic Police are trying their level best to inculcate some discipline to the un-disciplined motorists, our un-disciplined motorists are refusing to reciprocate.

We find many two-wheeler  and four-wheeler drivers using  high power “Halogen” headlights. Many Chinese origin cheap high  wattage halogen lamps are available in  the market and the motorists replace the original  headlights  with these high power lamps.

These halogen headlights  emit a white light with a high luminance which  causes momentary blindness to the motorists driving in the  opposite direction, which can be  fatal.

During night hours we find the Traffic Police apprehending only the drunken drivers and they generally do not check for  any other visible traffic rules violations. Apart from checking drunken driving, Traffic Police should also check and impose penalty against all other visible traffic rules violations.
