Not if it's blown out, which in the case of shots like this it usually is. It's nearly impossible to shoot directly at a light source and not have some blowout. The trick is to mange it and not get too blown out. Most night shots like this are exposed even further to the right than the typical ETTR.

Using various HDR techniques would be another way to manage this:

I worry about the moving headlights in a long exposure bracketed situation.

In that situation you'd choose one of the bracketed exposures to be optimized for the headlights. You might end up doing a cut & paste layer in post.
