Re: lighting laws

what i found is to use a set of driving lights under the bumper- they aren't too high that way, you get high beamed less ( i used to be on my toyota)

then ur note supposed to used a bulb that's over 55-60 watts

But I use a 100 watt bulb in my KC driving lights in my car- I got pulled over once now- the light was inncorectly aimed- it got bumped - them the officer said they are brighter then your head lights lol

I also get highbeamed at least once a nite at most

Re: lighting laws

I found a site for Pa.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] you might want to check out if it doesn't help the only other thing I could suggest is to stop by a state inspection station and ask them, they would know for sure.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Hope this helps[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
