Quite often I drive on main beam without realising. I like to slump a little in the seat, so I don't see the blue light on the dash as it's hidden by the steering wheel boss; and also the headlights are so crap that you don't realise they're on main beam. Oncoming motorists don't notice either - again because the headlights are so crap.

 

Anyway, someone flashed me today, for the first time in 3 years of VX'ing, including commuting in dark Swiss winters.

 

They were probably given a suntan from the dazzling brilliance of the VX lights.

Or maybe they thought you only had your sidelights on?

Slumping in the seat is bad for your posture

Could the on coming vehicle have gone over a bump, that can give an impression of a flash of lights?  ;)

I always get paranoid that something has flown off the car when I get flashed :D probably what was said above though that's what it normally is
