Side lights and low- beam headlights in built-up areas.

Both low-beam headlights and side lights have certain drawbacks. It is advisable to seek a lighting system for the front of motor vehicles which lacks these drawbacks but preserves the advantages. This can, for example, be achieved with a light of an intensity between the present low-beam headlights and side lights quarantining adequate conspicuousness with an acceptable degree of glare. The use of such "new style side lights", however, implies that the public lighting must also be taken into account. On the other hand, alternatives should be investigated as well.
