Yeah, the headlight halos are pretty obnoxious. I wonder, were you using any filters? Pulling those off definitely helps in this kind of shot. What did you shoot it with?

Anytime you have bright lights smack dab in the middle of the frame, it's a set-up for blow-outs, lens flares and other optical effects. The rain definitely doesn't make those situations better because you are effectively shooting through thousands of little prisms. When I'm shooting in the rain, I bring the best glass I own and I do remove the filters. I also make sure I dry the lens surface off just before taking the shot. No sense shooting with those prisms right on the lens.

My RP stuff is here.
