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 + Blinding  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) - 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


  # Oct 2015 - Blinding Lights blamed for soaring crash rate - a gimmick too far?
The latest road accident statistics make sorry reading, since blinding lights were introduced instead of falling UK and EU accidents have increased  - a problem bigger than the VW crisis! 

  # Oct 2015 - Lightmare call for Transport Minister Patrick McLoughlin to act now  

Manufacturers and Government appear not to 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.

 We can only to stop this escalating  "Lightmare" with your vote.
It costs nothing and we will not trouble you with spam.
We will do our utmost to ensure that they will not ignore us.   
 It’s called people power!
