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.
