High beam headlights must not be used within how many feet of oncoming vehicles?


Within 500 feet of oncoming vehicles, high-beam headlights are not permitted.

The answer is 500 feet. High beam headlights are very bright and can blind oncoming drivers, so it is important to be aware of how far away they are before using them.

Another question that commonly comes up is whether or not you should use your high beams when there is fog. The answer to this question is no, you should not use your high beams when there is fog. The reason for this is that the fog will reflect the light from your headlights back at you, making it difficult to see.

If you have any questions about driving in different weather conditions, be sure to ask a certified driving instructor or consult your local DMV. They will be able to give you the most accurate information.
