I have seen even worse things, like people installing blue 
tinted headlights in order to mimic the "blueish" hue of 
the xenon lamps (even though that is not a blueish hue but 
a whiteish hue that seem blueish due to the contrast of 
night light conditions). They do not seem to realize that 
blue is the most easily absorved wavelenght at night, and 
the conditions get even worse at rain!

I believe some countries like France used to have 
mandatory yellow lights for the low beam in the 
headlights. So basically you always drive with your fog 
lights. A lot of EU contries also mandate that night over 
head lighting on roads to be yellow.

Which planet is that? My planet has a white sun :)
