the low beams never exceeded glare limits.

high beams
on the straightaway, visibility was good on the right side of the road and fair on the left side. on curves, visibility was good on both right curves and fair on both left curves.

high-beam assist compensates for some limitations of this vehicle’s low beams on the straightaway and on the gradual left curve.
