Yeah, I got the same thing driving on either side of T-Bay. On the west side, it was dark and I'd been driving for 16hrs, so I was just out of it and driving like normal... for Alberta... they frown on 120km/hr. Then 11 hrs later, after I slept in the truck, I get a ticket on the east side in the exact same situation as yours... I was PISSED, and I proceeded to do the speed limit exactly, which made everyone behind me mad too since there's no place to pass on that highway.

At least both officers gave me a break and only charged me with 10 over, not the 30 I was doing, guess they took pity on a university student moving out east.

hids do suck in heavy snow falls like your freind said actually makes it worse it is true. i sell hids in windsor ontario area and get the complaint alot. i had the dealer turn the drl's off (managers a good freind) so when the snow is heavy i just run the fog lights which also have hids and im fine. you can still see pretty good with the headlights on but its like watching the windows 95 screen saver while trying to drive lol

Thanks!!
With all the lights from other cars even with good bulbs there is a lot of glare in Chicago with the snow. Did you know tossing on a pair of yellow polarized lens for sun glasses such as Oakley eliminates the glare from the snow. It's actually really nice to have those for winter driving even in the dark. Just a suggestion since I know nothing about bulbs.
