Notwithstanding any more general law respecting rules of the road for motor vehicles, whenever any person, operating a motor vehicle on any highway in this state, shall:
(1) Meet another person operating a motor vehicle, proceeding in the opposite direction and equipped with headlamps constructed and adjusted to project glaring or dazzling light to persons in front of such headlamps, upon signal of either person aforesaid, the other shall forthwith dim the headlamps of his motor vehicle or tilt the beams of glaring or dazzling light projecting therefrom downward so as not to blind or confuse the vision of the operator in front of such headlamps; or
(2) Shall follow another vehicle within two hundred (200) feet to the rear, he shall dim the headlamps of his motor vehicle or tilt the beams of glaring or dazzling light projecting therefrom downward.
The foregoing provisions shall not apply to the operators of motor vehicle aforesaid, if they shall have covered the upper one-third of the headlamps thereon with a coat of paint or with a coat of some other permanent material which shall cover the glass enclosing the lenses of such headlamps. The paint or other permanent material shall be applied so that it extends downward from the top of the lens of the headlamps and so that the lower line of the covering shall extend over the entire upper one-third of the lens of the headlamp; and provided further, that the provisions of this section requiring the covering of headlamp lenses, as aforesaid, shall not apply to tourists driving through the state for a period of not more than ten (10) days.
