Kind of OT, But Safety Related?
I have a problem with headlights and snow. On all the newer vehicles I have driven in the past 15-20 years, the headlights collect snow and making driving in a snow storm impossible. The built up snow acts like the lights are on high beam, causing unbelievable glare. Last night I was caught in a good storm and had to stop and scrape my headlights every 4-5 miles so that I could see. I don't know if this is a design flaw with the new headlight systems, or just that the halogen lamps don't put out enough heat to melt the snow. All I know is that driving in a snowstorm is now a life threatening experience. I never had this problem with the old sealed beam incandescent lights. I have tried rainX on the lamps to no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions or proven solutions where I can keep the benefit of my halogen lights, & still see when I need to drive in a snowstorm.
Thanks for any suggestions.
