Future Headlights May Almost Disappear Rain Or Snowfall

Future Headlights May Almost Disappear Rain Or Snowfall

Driving at night when it’s raining or snowing can be dangerous. It’s because, besides illuminating the road and the surrounding environment, the headlights also illuminate raindrops and snowflakes, making them appear as bright flickering streaks. And the driver’s view of the road ahead becomes obscured by brightly headlight-lit raindrops or snowflakes. But in future, headlights may turn the rain and snowflakes invisible, and enable the driver to see clearly through raindrops and snow.
