Testing timed exposures when a car came by and hit the breaks saturating the whole scene in red. Thought it looked interesting.

Do light pollution filters work for the kind of lights you'd find out on the US countryside. Guess it would be none LED stop lights, metal halide street lamps, and those red flashing lights on towers and wind turbines. Those damn wind turbines are EVERYWHERE.

A LP filter helps filter out the sky glow at night when observing or imaging but they will not stop LP from direct lights like those on the turbines or vehicles passing or street lights .

Here's a good article explaining : https://astrobackyard.​com/filters-for-astrophotography/ (external link)

Right... What I'm talking about is the glow from those kinds of lights. In left side of the image there's a yellow glow and it's coming from a lone blinking yellow light at a cross road. It's about two miles away and its not really evident with the naked eye, but the camera is picking it up. What I'd like to know is if this kind of glow would be reduced by these kinds of filters. Some have told me yes while others say it would be minimal difference.

Did you read the article link i posted ? It’s way down at bottom of page where it talks about a Astronomiks CLS filter . You might find for night landscape shots that might help you best if it’s in your budget . It’s very popular among amateur astronomers that use a DSLR camera for all imaging .

I've read a few articles and watched some YouTube videos on different types of filters and I have an idea of what they offer. I know about different light wavelengths from keeping reef and planted aquariums so I generally know what kind of bulb transmits what kind of light. I guess I'm just wanting a simple answer that only using one in my current situation would be able to answer. Thank you for your help though!

I think most any amateur astronomers have been in your place . We also know when answers given are not considered it’s wasting time to help so good luck with your search , hope you find your answer .

Welcome to 2020 ! ;)
The sad truth is, it’s getting harder to find a place that isn’t affected by light or physical pollution of some kind. Heck, I was born over 70 years ago out in the middle of nowhere (high plains of NM)”spell that Dark!” You can’t aim a camera any direction now with out seeing wind turbines.
But like the old saying goes, when ya got lots of lemons-make lemonade, or something like that. :)
