Did anybody else catch this item ?

My view is that form has replaced function with vehicle external lighting, Fairy lights masquerading as DRLs with integrated indicators, and headlights brighter than the lighthouse at the Needles !  Some designs of headlights and brake lights are so bright, they almost completely obscure indicators.   Excessive bright light only reinforces the darkness for the driver, and just dazzle everybody else.

Halogen Headlamps were limited to 55W input power, and surely modern headlamps should be limited on light output ?
