    Normally you can see lens flare through the viewfinder before you take the picture. If you notice it just move the camera around slightly to change the angle that the strong headlights are hitting the lens at.

    You can also go buy a Tamron 17-50 2.8. It's very flare resistant.

    do it without the filter
    check the viewfinder for flare

    aside from that, you canT' do much if you want to have exactly this angle

    your foglight bulbs should have quartz glass to block UV, there is no need for the filter ;)

    As far as I know quartz glass will absorb short uv wavelengths (particularly the glass used in halogen bulbs), but near-visible uv will be transimitted, for photolithography etc, but there are also better blends of glass for this.

    also, it was a joke :squint:

    edit: noob.
