Sign my White House.gov Petition for LED Headlights!

Hey guys,

So, inspired by the recent jalopnik article:
http://jalopnik.com/a-50-year-old-re...1594900077/all

And, frankly just sick of government regulations, I decided to start this petition to bring matrixbeam and other innovative LED headlight technology to our shores!

Sign here:
http://wh.gov/l6pSZ

And please pass this on! Let's get these cool & safe headlights to our shores!

I would rather have the high/low beam option vs. the one where the car makes the decision

The DOT rules are incredibly strict, which is why you don't see any aftermarket DOT approved headlights. Almost every add-on headlight you see on cars is illegal for street use, and for good reason.

But we should allow new tech to be used because it will help reduce the price for peasants like us E46 owners.

So you are telling me that these manufactures are too stupid to have a manual high/low for led lights? Sounds like a waste of time petition.
