What are some ideas for handling the blinding green dock lights when backing at night?

They never seem to bother me its the other drivers who sit there with their headlights on that get me

You need to oppose the green with an eye shield (glasses?) that's red. Amber or rose should also help, but red is the opposite of green.

That's the color/physics answer. I'm not a driver yet, so maybe there's a different professional answer.

Jeremy B,

Yellow shield or glasses will help for bright lights at night.

Avoid looking directly into them. Never caused me a problem.

Well, as we all get older, our sensitivity to light may change. Some docks have super green LEDs and no other ambient light making a huge contrast. Now throw in some precipitation and it can really change the game. The amber glasses or in some cases clipons sound like they may work. Any other "helpful" tips?

I find sometimes a police car on the side of the road at night will seem to have ridiculously bright lights that make it hard to see past it.

I agree, they seem to be more of a hazard when they are that bright.
