    Default Fine on HID lights

    Traffic police gave us a ticket/Fine for HID light on mall road.
    they also stop two other cars for HID light, while we were standing there.

    any body else having problem with HID lights? or it was just one day action.....

    but they said they will going to fine every car with HID lights.

    buying a second hand car is a ''Nightmare''

    Gentlemen - I personally am in favor of them being not used at all. Especially on roads that allow on-coming traffic on the other side. HIDs' create visibility issues for the other side particularly when our beautiful country does not believe in turning on the pole lights! a case very often observed in cantonment. I see the points related to people driving with their full beams turned on - but let me remind you, we are a very selected group of educated people in this country and most of us make up the majority of people who do have/can afford cars in this country. Should we take a stand and limit the use and abuse of HIDs I am sure the other percentage of car owners who unfortunately lack the sense and education will follow! Think about it!

    They do fine once in a blue moon. Otherwise they are not very strict.
    If someone said to me that you can have three wishes, my first would have been to get into racing, my second to be in Formula 1, my third to drive for Ferrari

    HIDs are not a nuisance if we use them they way they are supposed to be. but here we see rolla drivers installing HID in their headlamps (which are not proper projectors and hence scatter everywhere on the road don't form a proper beam) and switiching on HIDs at high beam, having their fog lights switched on as well and on top that they honk their horns like its the end of the world. This is why HIDs should be banned coz of our country's paindoo thinking that 'the more the merrier' when it comes to lights. i have seen old land cruisers having their PIAA lights switched on inside city. If we can learn to use HIDs properly (with projectors and adjusting it to proper beam levels) then it is actually a very good thing in a country where the government refuses to switch on street lights (unless you are driving in DHA or Cantt).

    The sad part is, 90% of cars in Pakistan are driven by drivers, who have no road sense whatsoever - honking even when there are no cars visible, driving on full beams even if the street lights are working, breaking signals etc.

    I myself drive on fullbeams when the streetlamps are off. But I make it a point to turn them off the second I see another car whose driver might have visibility issues cause of my headlights. And then obviously I turn my fullbeams on if I see other cars with them on, and most of them duly turn them off. But there are always old uncles and those aunties who have no idea how to drive a car, and they don't really give a crap about the harm they cause others.

    it all depends upon the temperature of the lights you are using in other words the color ... anything above 6000K is banned ... i have been using HIDs (6000K) from the last 7 years (bought and installed them in 2003) nearly been all over pak in my ride and never been fined for that

    "Xenons" are called High Intensity Discharge lamps or HIDs.

    You statement is incorrect.

    You do? if you have enough money go buy good hid kits along with proper HID projectors. Otherwise forget about it or you can always be an idiot and blind the incoming drivers.

    Actually no. From what it seems to me he only uses them to make others understand how it feels to get blinded by HIDs.

    I have observed that the full beam of new corolla can cut through the hid beam from the opposite direction and u can clearly see the driver with eyes being squeezed, no?
    My dear ALLAH when I loose hope, help me to remember that Your love is greater than my disappointment and Your plans for my life are better than my Dreams.

    no. HIDs are way too powerful for stock corolla lights.
