Complaint - Exterior Lighting

MY 2009 PRIUS HAS HEADLIGHTS THAT INTERMITTENTLY FLICKER OR EXTINGUISH AT RANDOM TIMES. SOMETIMES THE RIGHT HEADLIGHT WILL EXTINGUISH, SOMETIMES IT'S THE LEFT HEADLIGHT, AND SOMETIMES BOTH EXTINGUISH AT THE SAME TIME. SOME TIMES THE LIGHT(S) COME BACK ON WITHOUT ANY ACTION, AND SOMETIMES IT IS NECESSARY TO TURN THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH OFF AND RIGHT BACK ON. TO DATE, THE LIGHTS HAVE RESUMED NORMAL OPERATION WHEN THEY ARE TURNED ON AND OFF, AT LEAST SO FAR IT HAS WORKED EVERY TIME. THIS CAN BE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND FRIGHTENING ESPECIALLY ON THE FREEWAY OR A MOUNTAIN ROAD. THIS PHENOMENON SEEMS TO BE INCREASING IN ITS FREQUENCY OF OCCURRENCE. WHY HASN'T TOYOTA BEEN FORCED TO RECALL THE PRIUS FOR THIS LIFE THREATENING SAFETY ISSUE? I WAS TOLD BY THE TOYOTA DEALER THAT IT'S A BAD FILAMENT IN THE HEADLIGHT, I'VE NEVER SEEN A FILAMENT BEHAVE THAT WAY.
