I'm just wondering about the concept of having both hi and lo beams on at the same time? Don't the lo beams shut off for a reason? I mean, sure, it's going to be brighter, but does that actually help you see better? If you're driving fast enough to need to use the hi beams (so you can see further), then what difference does it make seeing stuff closer to the front of the truck? At those speeds, if something is so close that you'd only see it in the lo beam area, I wouldn't think you'd be able to hit the brakes in time anyway, and wouldn't that extra bright area sort of blind you to the dimmer light of your hi beams further ahead, where you actually would have a chance of stopping or avoiding an obstacle?
Does that make any sense, or maybe I just don't get how it works?
