Maybe it's the high intensity headlights they are using these days. I often get flashed at night in my Alfa. I drive in a mostly urban/suburban environment and I can state unequivocally I'm not using the high beams. Last year, at oil change, I had dealer check headlight beam alignment and they were fine.I noticed more high beams lately too.... Who knows why.
Hate to say this but ..... People who know how to not overreact in an emergency while driving . ...... Might drive Alfa's, probably don't drive Lincoln's.
.... No idea what that person was thinking trying something like that in a Lincoln. Isn't about power .. it's about control at speed.
