And if the cops lights were not on high beam, and the OP THEN high beamed him, he would be guilty according to the law that was posted. I didn't see anything in there that said if you were being high beamed it was ok to high beam back. That is why I said if the cops video shows he was low beamed, and the OP was low beamed and then high beamed the cop, it could hurt him unless the OP's video shows clearly he was blinded by the officers lights. Then it might mitigate it, some, but i doubt it. It's traffic court. Most judges are gonna go by the book and say, you high beamed him, pay at the window.Signal to noise ratio. The cop's lights were the noise, and if his high beam was on, there was an excessive amount of noise. What the OP needed to do was boost the signal (i.e. the amount of light reflecting off objects in front of his car).
Think about what would happen if a nuclear weapon were to explode behind the OP's car (or the Sun were to somehow rise from that direction in a matter of 1 second). This also increases SNR to the extent that the light from the cop's high beams won't even bother him. There's still the same amount of "noise" but it gets completely drowned out by the "good" signal.
We could if,and, or other it to death,
Again, the best choice would have been to look at the fog line or edge of the road. Was taught that decades ago in drivers ed. and surprisingly, it works.
