Hmmmmm. So if I had 9000 W of "properly-aimed"
gas-discharge/plasma/Xenon/fusion lamps, the reflection/glare from a
rainy road wouldn't bother you? I have 2 x 55 on low, and 4 x 100 on
high. Let's not make this a "question of degree" or "but I need to see"
discussion. If you're irritating other drivers, you're irritating other
drivers. The requirement for "low" beams occurs when there's another car
around. If (other driver's) lights are also illuminating the same road,
who needs more light? End of story.

I use a very subjective and punitive rationale:  if your lights bother
me, I hit you in the face with my luminous sledgehammer.
