Its because you need to adjust your headlights to the proper level. Not quite sure why you love driving around blinding other drivers with your headlights pointed improperly.
x2. It's too easy to adjust the headlights down a bit. If they are in other people's eyes and you're being flashed often the lights are too high. It's a dangerous situation, not least to you. Who needs a blinded driver heading more or less straight toward them? Hitting people with even brighter lights in their eyes just adds to the danger, aside from being obnoxious.

I'll drive at night with my DRLs if I'm pulling a trailer or have the rear end otherwise weighed down and the front up. About the only time I'll flash brights at someone is when they turn their brights on and leave them on, and then I give them as short a flash as I can just to let them know. That usually works, and if it doesn't at least only one of us is blind, not both.

Re: High beam flash?

So it's not just me?

I wondered why the heck I was getting flashed so much, didn't level my lights yet, but figured that on a stock rig they should already be that way? Probably explains why my low beams are decent for long ranges.

Looks like I'll be adjusting them.

I've got a 2010 TT and I get flashed a bunch. I've wondered from time to time if my lights needed to be adjusted, but havnt ever been worried enough about it to do more than wonder.

They are easy to adjust; all it takes a long phillips head screwdriver and counting the turns on each side to get them to match.

My 2010 lamps were at the limit stock, with nothing in the back. With the back full of camping gear, nearly everyone was flashing me. I cranked the lamps down a bit, made oncoming traffic happy, and can still see just great.

High beam flash?

I get it constantly. I got it the other day when the sun was setting, went from DRLs to my low beams and some jack wagon flashed me.
