Let's get something straight, everyone. The manufacturers would LOVE not to have all these silly regulations that go overboard in the name of safety. Lawmakers pass these misguided statutes, then leave it up to the auto makers to somehow implement them. Frankly, I myself see nothing safe about being forced to look at oncoming headlights during the day. It bugs me that I have to be inconvenienced because another driver won't pay enough attention to actively watch for oncoming traffic.
If you think things are bad now, watch what happens when manufacturers have to figure out how to double fuel economy with existing technology - just because Washington decided it would be a good thing.
