Whenever a driver of a vehicle approaches an oncoming vehicle within one thousand (1,000) feet, such driver shall use a distribution of light, or composite beam, so aimed that the glaring rays are not projected into the eyes of the oncoming driver. The lowermost distribution of light, or composite beam, specified in paragraph 2 of subsection C of Section 12-203 of this title shall be deemed to avoid glare at all times, regardless of road contour and loading.
