The RAC has welcomed the Government's move to investigate headlight glare following a rise in complaints from drivers.

Research showed as much as 80 per cent of drivers believe the problem is worsening.

RAC's safety spokesperson Rod Dennis said: "The fact the Government has listened to drivers’ concerns and heeded our calls to examine the complex issue of headlight glare in more detail marks a real turning point.

"The topic has undoubtedly struck a chord with motorists up and down the country, with many people contacting us directly to call for something to be done."
