The reason of mine buying those halogen , ->
because here in bangalore , on highway [my college is on highway , n i stay on highway too
] and even in city sometimes , not a single person dim a light. And if you try to dim light , hoping that he will understand and he will dim it too , it's never gonna happen. they think that we are playing with our headlights... horrifying people. I cant able too see anything in the front of my road manytimes totally blinded by oncoming cars. So i decided to buy halogen. now i dont dim light too like them. we have to adapt in our environment to survive man.
And you will find trucks driving in a dark [as there is no street light] on highway ,,, on the right side fast lane with the speed of 30-40 kmph with not a single light working in his truck nor radium. I was going at the speed of 90-100 kmph [with stock headlamp] , suddenly i realized that something is there in front of me and when i was 3-4 meters away , ya it is a truck and i pressed the brake and turned left. i was just 1 meter away from it when i turned. survived thankfully.
Sometimes here , all 3 lanes are occupied by truck drivers racing with each other but nobody is in a situation to win , where do we go man !!!!
seriously no traffic sense here , and if we touch someone's car or bike , and even if it was his mistake , they come to fight with us blaming us. In addition other people around us comes to interfere who has actually no connection with the matter. and creates the whole drama on the road especially when they see we are not south indian.
Bombay and my native city , lot better , nobody cares for minor accidents.
