Bright LED headlights blind oncoming drivers

The recent promotion of LED headlights may well be another item that causes distractions for drivers.

Most, if not all, people recognize the dangers of driving while being distracted. When distracted, our attention and focus become compromised, reaction time is shortened and we become a hazard on the road. I wonder whether the National Transportation Safety Board has considered the impact that LED headlights have on drivers who approach vehicles with these blinding lights. Surely, being temporarily blinded by “white light” would equate to being an involuntary distracted driver.
