New Study Finds Bad Headlights In State

OKLAHOMA CITY -

Pickup trucks in Oklahoma may be part of new study that says their headlights are inadequate. 

Earlier this year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tested mid-size cars and SUVs and found most of those vehicles also had poorly rated headlights. 

Researchers say poorly designed headlights not only make it hard for drivers to see their surroundings but they also create dangerous conditions for drivers in oncoming traffic. 

That's because the headlights cause a glare that may blind other drivers. 

The IIHS says most automakers are already trying out new technology to make improvements.
