Welcome to Lightmare
Our organisation has been formed to fight the growing road safety issue of blinding lights which affect a driver's ability to perceive hazards. 

The Authorities are allowing this "Lightmare" to escalate, they are putting the most vulnerable and less conspicuous road users at risk - pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.

HID-Xenon headlight + High brightness LED Daytime Running Lights
Our aim is to persuade the World regulators (NHTSA and UNECE) to limit eye damaging light intensity:-
 
   #  High Intensity Discharge Xenon headlights (HID-Xenon) - they can cause temporary blindness

   #  Misuse of brake and fog lights - contravention of highway codes

   #  Over-bright Daytime Running Lights (DRL) - the EU have set maximum brightness to 1,200cd
    to compete with the sun - the Japanese proposed a more acceptable 200cd = bright sidelights

 
 ## Since blinding lights have become mandatory, accidents have increased to cyclists and pedestrians.
##  Jan 2014 - The latest madness:  Audi Quattro with laser headlights and BMW i8 laser headlights
Lasers are damaging to the human eye - see EU Directive Optical Radiation 2006/25/EC Article 2(c)
Why do motor manufacturers think they can blind oncoming drivers? Clearly a marketing gimmick.
Blinding people is against the United Nations Human Rights and Convention on the Rights of the Child


Manufacturers and Government's appear not care about the dangers of blinding lights.
In this website we explain why a driver's vision is affected by blinding lights.
We document the growing body of Expert ophthalmological opinionLegal opinion and  Media  coverage, which will permit those responsible to be brought to justice for the consequential extra deaths and injuries caused by their sanction to deliberately blind drivers.

The EU bureaucrats are not listening, so we are targeting the more litigious USA then to force the EU to also act.
