Are Blue Headlights Safe?

You’re traveling late through a part of highway in the dark night, in the countryside. It is the kind of highway that can be frightening. Because you’ve been driving for a long time, getting home safely is top priority while driving through this part of highway.^
After hours of traveling, you see a set of lights in the distance. As you get closer, you begin to squint more as you feel that you are going to lose your eyesight by the oncoming car’s lights.

You put your high beams to show them they have their high beams on. Then they indicate they did not have their high beams on, it was their standard beams and they were just blue.

These bright blue lights have been infuriating drivers across the nation. This is because many motorists feel that these blue lights should be illegal because they are too bright and dangerous, leading to debate all over.

These blue beams are also called high-intensity discharge lamps or HID. These HID lights have been available for cars since the 90s and aren’t that new. HID lights are like stadium lights that warm up to get to the brightest. These strong lights cutting through the darkness like the Hulk ripping a phone book is why these lights are wanted. That brightness is also increasing the thought that many motorists believe the lights are dangerous.

Many motorists think that because new cars come standard with these blue lights, they should be okay. However, cars that have aftermarket blue lights are banned in most states. Because the cars weren’t built to have those lights, they will be wrongfully placed and that is why they are illegal.

When regulated, blue lights are legal. However, if you are wanting to place these blue lights in your vehicle, and it doesn’t have them, don’t install them. It is banned and you could be faced with citations.
