HI James - very interesting theory - yes you are right LED's of of the right colour temperature (measured in the Kelvin scale) can be seen easier in the dark but do not necessarily project further. Personally I can't see how a low wattage LED's would help a driver see better in the dark - it may help the vehicle be seen when parked as the headlights should be on when driving in the dark. Surely the colour rendering would be just unnoticable by other drivers when the dipped headlights where on.
Your last sentence seems a bit weird when you say - your quote (A LED bulb in the house can draw 25 Watts but produce the same light as a 75Watt bulb). Watts aren't a measurement of current being drawn - it is a measure of energy consumed
