Cornering Lamps

I am wanting to add cornering lamps and have come up with a few ideas but I figured I would bounce this off of you guys. I could add a cheap Wal-Mart driving light between the bumper and fender or a small square lamp next to the fog lamp pointing toward the side. Obviously I want to save a buck but a flush mount LED flood light next to the fog light would be extremely effective. I was wondering if anybody has done anything diff than what I have been thinking.

So nobody else here has issues seeing around corners? Or are suspension "improvements" / changes more important than safety?

What about oncoming traffic? Seems like cornering lamps will be dangerous for oncoming traffic. It will be blinding for drivers.

You must be too young to remember but up until the mid 90's there were many vehicles that had them especially if you bought something with an upgraded package. They are briefly mentioned in this wikipedia article: Automotive lighting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia but if you want to know more just google it! Maybe Canada had an issue with them for you to not understand it but if you ever drove a vehicle with them you would understand.

The ambulances here have them on the side of their front fenders (guessing it helps them see house numbers down dark streets) and they're on whenever their headlights are on. These are insanely bright LEDs that in my mind are a hazard to other motorists. Changing lanes, you're blinded by these lights at night. All you see is an intense light beam.

Cornering lights, I'd assume you'd mount them on the side of the front bumper, is still pretty high when you're driving next to a small car. I get blinded by trucks with HID headlights when I drive my Infiniti so I'm not a fan of any lights that inhibit other drivers.

Traditionally the lamps I am speaking of are not enough to blind anybody. It is a light that will provide light up a small area with a fairly spread out pattern that is not extremely focused. Here is a short video to help explain it:

I would imagine you guys that use your trucks to plow would welcome the extra light while your hazard lights are on.
