When I decide that someone is intentionally trying to blind me to show their 
contempt for the fact that I'm only going 10 MPH over the speed limit, I 
adjust my rear view mirror to reflect their headlights into _their_ eyes. 
With the top down on my car, this works on any height vehicle that's behind 
me.  Sometimes this makes them back off and sometimes it makes them pull to 
the side to blind me in my side view mirror, which I promptly adjust.  Both 
mirrors are useless with that kind of light behind me anyway.

I'm tempted to build one of those behind-the-seats-wind-deflection things 
made out of one-way glass with the reflective side to the back.  It would 
also have to be adjustable for various heights of a******s.
