      Low beams

      On the straightaway, visibility was fair on the right side of the road and inadequate on the left side. On curves, visibility was fair on the sharp right curve and inadequate on the gradual right and both left curves.

      The low beams never exceeded glare limits.

      High beams

      On the straightaway, visibility was good on the right side of the road and inadequate on the left side. On curves, visibility was good on the gradual right curve, fair on the gradual left and sharp right curves, and inadequate on the sharp left curve.

      High-beam assist compensates for some limitations of this vehicle's low beams on the straightaway and all 4 curves.
