An automotive headlamp is housed within a rotatable spherical shield so that light-diminishing road debris such as slush accumulates on the shield and not the headlamp. Wipers are mounted in wiping relation to the shield so that the debris is removed when the shield is rotated. A switch in the passenger compartment of a vehicle allows the driver to rotate the spherical shield as needed, and cleaning fluid is housed within a reservoir to enable operation of the mechanism over extended periods of time.
