    No heat generated so they will ice up

  • Slow and steady

    DOT approved LED lights five years ago, it takes the truck industry that long to catch up, they’re always behind the curve.

    You need to instruct the truck owners how to aim them! They
    are a pain in the A– when miss aligned in the rain or snow coming at you. If they are going to be sold , they need to be installed by a professional shop! The US DOT needs to seta new category on the CDL Physical for Night Blindness, If tested with your not allowed to drive from dusk until dawn, period!

    Every Penske truck with LED headlights that has either followed or met me on a two-lane road blinds me as bad, if not worse than a regular headlight vehicle with high beams on. These LED headlights are going to cause a serious accident when operating on a narrow two-lane road in rain and roadspray at a curve, as the oncoming driver is completely blinded. Looks like an “ambulance chaser’s” dream. As another reader point out, no heat – no snow melt. If one were to take a higher intensity halogen headlight, and focus the beam the same as the LED pattern, it would be just as effective. good concept, poor execution.
