      RTO to check intensity of headlamps

      Just saw this news today that RTO has instructed traffic police to check the intensity of
      The headlamps and fine if found more than the RTO norms..

      Looks like 100/90 needs to go out..

      What is next? 4 wheeler can't have Stepney?

      good to know, fukin i can't see the road clearly due to these so called high intensity of lamps, ****ers never even try low beam
      Its a good move

      P.S. Mine is a general outburst against the high intensity lamps, not directed at the 100/90 users

      They better do this on the white Tata Indicas and Magic, the morons who drive with high beam on. Or at least educate them how to use their headlights sensibly.

      I think the law specifies the wattage. So 100/90s and HIDs are out. Start playing with the fogs. Good if we can stamp out hooligans who do not know that you can dip.

      IIRC there is no specific rule against HIDs at the moment in India. The law only defines the wattage permitted (and colour by interpretation). A 4300K Hid will still fall within specs cause it falls into the 35W or 50W category - still lower than the limit of 60 Watts.

      What they can look for next is to see if the built in shield is intact - and in the cars that come without the shield, if you have the Black DOT in the centre.

      The latter point is moot - because if the vehicles came with non spec headlamp assemblies (or anything else), they would not have passed the homologation and be permitted to sold/registered.

      What I do is drive with the headlamp leveler at the lowest setting while in the city. When on long distance night trips, the level is adjusted accordingly.

      Did you know that adding alloys or upsizing the tyres is also against the law ?

      We had this discussion a while ago. CMV rule doesn't specify wattage IIRC for bulbs. There is a thread on that too.

      Improve the road infrastructure and driving manners and no one will ever need 100/90 or 130/110 lamps.
      Instead of half-brained measures like checking light intensity, they should make projectors mandatory on new vehicles.

      PS: I'm still running stock wattage lamps, but they are simply not adequate!!!

      So does it mean that only rich people can afford to blind out normal guys like us . If we go for aftermarket HID its a crime (even if it adheres to all the norms), but all those guys who owns Audi's etc call still roam freely blinding others eyes!!

      Wish such rules strictly and effectively enforced all over the country. IMO people even should be banned from driving the cars if have such lights or their cars should be seized. I am totally fed up with the high mounted high intensity headlights used on many oncoming vehicles, can't see anything. It turns the driving in night very risky and headache prone.
