Will "sun"glasses with bright yellow lenses help or hurt my vision while driving at night?
I know a little about psychophysics and vision, and am aware that yellow lenses DO sharpen visual images, but at night when driving, would that benefit be offset by the limiting of light entering my eye from the tint? Also, if used during the DAY while driving, would a yellow tint (in UV coated lenses) In bright sunshine SHIELD my eyes from sun glare, or make it worse?

You should be careful about wearing yellow lenses in sunlight as these may not be UV absorbing. yellow tints increase contrast but generally make daylight feel brighter.
You should be very wary of using tints at night, although they make oncoming headlights more tolerable, they do reduce what you can see in dark conditions, especially on unlit roads.

Any lens with power refracts light to varying degrees, depending on the wavelength. This can be seen most easily by viewing white light going through a prism (see the cover of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon"). This is true not only for lenses in spectacles, but also for the natural lenses in your eyes. This effect is called chromatic aberration, and is often noticed as a slight blur or color fringes on objects. If you eliminate some of the colors of white light, these effects can be minimized. If the yellow lens is a true "blue-blocker," it selectively reduces the transmission of blue light, thus causing reduced chromatic aberration. However, as you correctly pointed out, whenever you look through a tinted lens there is a reduced transmission of light entering the eye. So the effectiveness of a blue blocker is largely individual preference.

Since direct sunlight has a proportionately large amount of yellow light, then yellow lenses will not help, and will likely make the glare appear worse. It would be much better to go with a polarized sunglass lens to selectively block out the reflected glare.

Sunglasses with yellow lenses are very useful in cloudy conditions as they will improve depth of field under those conditions. If you wear them in bright sunshine you will get limited protection and comfort. Wearing them at night will make driving more comfortable since they will decrease the glare of headlights.
