Getting flashed at night

I have the US Limited with Ultimate package which has the HID lights and adaptive lighting. My last car was a Focus ST and it also had HIDs that cornered with me. I have noticed I've been getting flashed (and not the good kind) three or four times a night driving home. This never happened to me in the Focus. I figured the lights were out of adjustment and took it to the dealer. They said everything is in spec. Has anyone else noticed this or had people flash them a lot?

No one ever flashes me.... and not when I'm driving either...

I did flash and beep at some dumbass that had their petrol cap open... and in typical dumbass way, she ignored me and carried on.

Sorry mate, maybe they're flashing to tell you you have an amazing car?

No flashes for me either after 6 months driving . Maybe you should have the dealer check your headlight alignment unless you're living in vampire country ...Maine is Stephen King's stamping ground after all

No flashes for me either, down here in Virginia, but I've only had the car for a month.

I think the drivers are just reacting to the brightness of your headlights, thinking you have your high beams on. Sometimes when that has happened to me, I just flash them back so they can see that I don't have my brights on. Most often I just ignore them.

In Holland flashing your headlights without any lead to avoid dangerous situations is prohibited. I presume that your headlights are not correctly adjusted. Visit your dealer to check them. Shouldn't be the first time that dealers forget this before delivery. Check also if your car wasn't heavily loaded on the backside when it happened. You can adjust the height of the headlight beam with the dialbutton on the utmost left. Dial to 1 or 2. O is default.

I've driven by Stephen King's house here. It's about 2 hours away from me and as creepy as you'd imagine.
Thanks all for the replies. I did have the dealer check the alignment before i posted and they said everything was in spec so I'll just keep an eye on it.

I have had my Limited Ultimate for less than a month, 6/2/17. I have noticed people flashing me at times, more than once. I believe the brightness of the headlights for people may lead them to believe that the brights are on. I live in Kentucky. I am going to start flashing back to let them know that I do not have my bright lights on. I just don't think about it as it is happening, but hopefully I can make a habit about it, maybe. Hope this helps.
