                      I like how they make it sound like your high (country) beams are your default lights, and then you have to switch to low beam for a car.

                      Well, that would be great if there weren't a million cars everywhere I drove lol.

                          Isn't that why high beams used to be associated with "driving" beams, and low beams are "dipped" beams?

                            Yup, that is the old terminology and still used in some places.

                              I drive with my high beams on whenever I can in the evenings and at night. More light = better visibility.

                              Killing my el cheapo VVME bulbs in the process, too. Good riddance.
