Regulations are already in place to help prevent headlamps from causing glare. Before vehicles can be sold or registered in the United Kingdom manufacturers must ensure compliance with international vehicle approval requirements, which include defined beam patterns and intensities to minimise the occurrence of glare.
The Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations 1989 prohibit the use of headlamps that can cause undue dazzle or discomfort to other road users. Vehicle users have a responsibility to ensure their vehicles are maintained correctly, and headlamp aim is checked at the annual roadworthiness inspection (MOT test) to ensure it is within acceptable limits.
