I did a bunch of research on it. Factory installed HID setups shouldn't
cause issues to other drivers (the lights are angled quite a bit
differently). The big issue is when people plug in these retrofit bulbs
(which generally aren't DOT approved). Then the angle causes an issue.

The odd thing is, I've never had much of a problem with the HID lights.
What kills me is the jacked up trucks that don't have the headlights
realigned. Maybe that is just an issue for us Virginians (and people in
NC, SC, etc).
