There have been many complaints received by JPJ in regards to the use of Xenon or High Intensity Discharge Lights headlamps that “blind” and pose danger to other road users. I myself hate when people using xenon headlamp which the colour is white and producing so much glare and disturbing other road user’s sight on the road at night!
JPJ APPROVED XENON HEADLAMP HID LIGHTS (HIGH INTENSITY DISCHARGE LIGHTS) ?
Those complaints were believed to have involved the use of Xenon modification kits that did not meet the required safety standards. A Xenon system comprises a Xenon light source, ballast, igniter, reflector and lens. All these components are designed to work as a system. You will see so many cars installed with HID lights without the projector, the lights will not concentrated on the road and spreaded all over the place.
Some of the car manufacturer have their cars installed with The Xenon system such as Nissan vehicles meet the international safety requirements and are ECE (Economic Commission of Europe) type approved which pose no danger to other road users as it had been extensively tested. The Nissan models sold in Malaysia which are fitted with Xenon headlamps include Navara 2.5, Latio 1.8Ti, X-Trail 2.5L, and Teana.
For those who have installed the HID headlamp without proper kit and approval from JPJ, we as a road user hope you can uninstall that lamp which is annoying to us!
