RESOURCE - How to Determine the Legality of Lights
Of all the accessories purchased for our vehicles, lights and reflectors seem to be the most common. I've written about it frequently here on the site as many people's choices are based on "cool" instead of safe, proper and legal. The Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement web site has posted a link to a document that is a guide to the inspection and approval of lights and reflectors. Before you spend money on new equipment for your vehicle you may wish to read this document. Just because the lights and reflectors are available for aftermarket purchase does not mean that they are legal and that you won't be charged and required to restore proper equipment after the change.
