    its just that there r more rollas than civics. otherwise civic walas or even mehran walas have no sense of high and low beams.

    Its just not about driving all rollas on high beam its about the level of illiteracy and confusion that the distant objects are clear in high beam although you loose the sight of nearer objects and bumps on the road.

    I'd end this up by saying drive safe on low beams as it causes the distraction for the cars coming from opposite directions.

    Hi All ...........

    Maybe Headlamps have low quality filament in low beam here.
    Kali Peeli Taxies use highbeams a lot in Khi.
    Maybe they're rollas from old age.


    There are even worse people who use HIDs without projectors.

    the govt. banned the use of beams in the twin cities. the first case i read after that was when the police stopped a car and the owner rewarded them cash in addition to the fine - it was SSP Sultan Azam Taimuri, the one who initiated the drive. his driver had the beams on.

    the thing to realize here is that we would not really be requiring those was there enough light on the roads. most of the rules are made without providing substitutional relief such as no parking on the main road without providing parking lots.

    anyhow as for beams, someone correctly mentioned once that the current shape Corolla's normal lights are pretty awful indeed. one can' really blame the drivers for the manufacturer's fault.

    I would say its JAHALAT to drive the car on high beam which most of the people do in Pakistan. The bottom line is that there are a lot of JAHIL drivers around who donot care about others.

    The position of newer corolla's high beams is such that it feels as if someone is driving a truck behind you, when a corolla behind you is with high beams on. really annoys.

    Also add taxis and vans in the cars list too because they also have crystal lights now and are drove on high beam.
    So, corolla is not alone in this field.
