For many many years now cars have headlamp levelling...

I'm sure we all know what headlamp levelling is, but for those that don't it is a means of adjusting ones dipped and main beam haead lamps in relation to the load carried in the car. My ancient Cavalier has headlamp levelling!

So why don't people utilise it properly? Many many cars dazzle me without the front fog lights being on, in fact I don't find that front fog lights are all that dazzling to me TBH. If your car has this feature, then set the thing to its next-to-lowest setting IF you are most of the time in your car alone, or with one passenger and nowt in the back!

Xenon (or whatever they're called) lights - now they should be regulated in some way, that flickery, ultra-bright "flashiness" (for want of a better word!) of them is most dazzling and very very annoying, worse IMO than plain halogen fog lights. Perhaps I should get a car with such lights, so I can join in

In response to the OP pics - I'd say they were most deffo fog lights

The Vauxhall Cavalier - one of the safest cars you'll bump into
