I FIND MYSELF CHANGING MY HEADLIGHTS MORE FREQUENTLY WITH THE PRIUS THEN ANY OTHER CAR IVE EVER HAD. THIS IS RIDICULOUS AND MOST DEFINITELY A SAFETY ISSUE. FRONT LIGHTS ARE NEEDED, I+D LIKE TO ASSUME THEY PUT THEM THERE FOR SAFETY, RIGHT? DRIVING WITH HFH BEAMS IS JUST RUDE TO ONCOMING TRAFFIC. DOUBLE SAFETY ISSUE HERE.
