These lights, also known as dipped lights, have a lower visibility range as they are focussed forward and downward. Under certain conditions they illuminate the road ahead better and also do not blind the oncoming drivers which could otherwise cause accidents. These lights are useful in high-traffic situations and also to avoid blinding the drivers on the opposite side because the vehicles are moving much closer.
