You asked a legit question and simply didn't understand the answer. That happens. Not like you came here full of bluster. I wish I had an answer but the best I can tell you is, they're probably not legal and God knows there are few places you really need them. All these extra lights on peoples cars irritate the hell out of me. Ok on dark country roads they might be useful, but from the city to the suburbs, they just blind on-coming traffic. Turn the damn things off!

I have recently installed some new lights to the roof of my 1999 Chevy Tahoe (these are the lights Optronics Off Road Lights - Walmart.com ) are they legal to be ran at night and or during the day on paved roads or only off-road usage?
I'll bet you a buck: Somewhere on the lighting package is teeny tiny little writing that says "Off road use only".

Yes of course I wear a cover, I am not going to get jammed up for being out of my sled and not wearing a cover. Only hairbag cops dont wear the covers. Mine is a green campaign hat with gold braid and a feather on the side.

Mine is bright pink, a leopard skin pattern with tassels and the words "POLICE...kinda" emblazoned on the front. I didn't think it was noticeable enough so I bedazzled it. Oh it's to DIE for!

The one with the horns from Scandinavia or the one with the facemask from Minnesota? I've been thinking of getting one but don't want to violate the rules.
