HID lights

I LOVE the cut-off on Euros.  Now matter the distance
from the car in front, I light up from about the
mid-trunk down.  Everything above is dark and below is
like daylight.  Sometimes I figure these people need
all these lights on (high beams, driving lamps) is
because they CAN'T see with their sh*tty/misaligned
lights.  You'd think the fact that they can watch the
coons in the trees off the side of the road would give
them a clue?
