headlight adjustments for Europe Driving
I am a bit puzzled... I am going to Europe on Saturday in my car (not the Honda on this occassion but the bus - still think you can help me)
I got one of those sticker sets from halfords that gives you 2 bits of plastic to stick on the headlamp glass to block out your light and keep it from dazzling oncoming traffic.
Here is the question.
over here, we drive on the left, meaning the light cone is skewed to the left.
Over there, they drive on the right, meaning a left skewed cone would dazzle them. So far so good.
Now would that not mean that I stick the sticker on the left side of the bulb (looking in driving direction, right if looking on the lamp while in front of the car) to block out that part of the cone?
The instructions from Halford say differently, putting the sticker in the bottom right (driving direction) segment of the lamp.
Am I missing the trick that the reflector redirects the light from the right of the bulb to the left of the street? Is Halfords wrong?
Your help would be much appreciated....
