    I can't take it! I get brighted by just about everyone I drive by! And I never drive with my brights on. When I flash them back, I can literally see there face, their like oh Sh*t! My god it pisses me off!

    Ya, I get that all the time. I thought it was cause Im lifted to the point the lights are right at eye level. I don't use my fog lights. Some times when I roll up behind some one at a stop light I will turn my lights off till the light turns green cause I am lighting their rear veiw mirror like a roman candle. But call me a dick, but the people on the hwy that bright me, I kind of like flashing them back and giving them 1st degree burns on their faces, just wait till I get my light bar and hids.:devil:

    I don't get it all the time, but enough that when a car is approaching I'll go ahead and move my hand to the stalk so that I'm ready to flash back. I do enjoy seeing the "DAMN!" face that they always seem to make.

    My wife won't let me follow her when we're in separate cars b/c the lights are high/bright enough that they bother her. When I do end up behind her, I make sure to keep plenty of spacing. I tend to do that with most people, actually.

    I get it every now and again. I flash back, if they were flashing me from behind for some ungodly reason I let them pass then turn on my fogs and sometimes brights depends on my mood. My lights are adjusted and I keep back from vehicles in front of me thus making the people behind me wanna squeeze into that 30+' space, Or they think if they flash me I will speed up 5 more feet.
