    It is an MOT requirement as any muck on the lense will make a xenon beam divert resulting in beams of light going all over the shop, could blind someone and cause an accident.
    Hence why they operate with your windscreen wipers, if the screen is dirty enough to warrant using the washer jets then the headlights are dirty enough to divert the xeneon beam, simple /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif
