Car headlights should be better regulated to reduce the dazzle they cause on-coming drivers, says a new Report by concerned road users, light experts and other specialists.

The Group – led by Baroness Hayter, a long term consumer champion urges the government to undertake research to better understand the causes of the problem, and to investigate the need to introduce appropriate standards on new tech, high spec headlights including LEDs which produce glare that can temporarily blind other drivers, risking road safety.

Dr John Lincoln of LightAware, the Report’s lead author, said: “Many modern headlights are incompatible with dark-adapted human eyesight – particularly for older drivers. They are too bright, too blue and blinding over too long a distance. Regulation is required to cut the risk of accidents and reduce driver fatigue”.
