The Light Technology Institute conducted an investigation among more than 300 car drivers, 60 truck drivers and 40 bus drivers. We found out that more than 60 percent feel that the greatest problem in driving at night is glare. In theory, a car of today does not cause glare problems. However, in practice, most people feel glared. Consequently, technological improvements have to be made regarding the development of headlamps that will not glare. Another approach is to introduce more and better night vision systems to enhance drivers' sight with today's headlamps.
