Unhappy i get crazy

i tryed whole day to set this heavy light, for camera mooving along the path, but always when in finish all is again caotic and wrong?!

i have one light @ the side of the camera like by a car this is 1.8 and when i follow the path always its to bright or to dark.
so i set -0.1 lights and +0.1 and for a time i set it it was right, but in the end everythig is to dark, i get crazy of this.
all lights are directional.

there is posted image to understand my mistakes... i dont know what to do because im loosing so many time.

One thing to know about directional lights: it shines evenly in one direction only. It's light rays are parallel to each other as if emitted perpindicular to an infinitely large plane. (straight from F1)

From the looks of it, you have about 20 directional lights facing about the same direction. This is unneccesary since one directional light facing straight down with the right intensity value would be pretty much the same. I think you may want them to be spotlights instead and perhaps add a few ambient lights here and there at very low intensites to light the entire scene.
