Q&A - More Light Needed
For me, the high beams on my '95 and '96 Dodge Ram trucks are inadequate. Certainly, this likely has something to do with my being 73. I avoid driving in the dark, but sometimes I must. I keep both the inside and the outside of my windshield clean, and the pitting from sand, etc is minimal.
Because of lens polish, my headlights are as clear as I can make them. I also keep my spectacles clean. Still, I have been looking for ways to shine light further down the highway. Recently, a salesman at an auto parts store was promoting a $400 12" light bar with switchable flood and spot LEDs. Very powerful.
Could I legally use this on BC highways at night? (Assuming I were to mount this light bar at the legal height, at the centre of the bumper, and have them properly aimed.)
Could I legally have a switch that enabled/disabled the hi/lo beam in conjuction with my OEM hi/lo switch in the cab? (I am aware that certain after-market lights must be disabled when the hi beam is on - but I'll need these lights during hi beam operation.)
