It's illegal to have them turned on while driving on a public road. Some states require them to be covered as well when on a public road, not sure about MD, but I'd cover them if I were you.

Only 4 lights can be turned on at the front of the vehicle at any time.

Max Height for Aux. lights is 42".
Therefore the windshield/hood and roof lights are for offroad use only.

Also I found a different site that says you can only have 55w lights for onroad use.

Bullethead Rule of thumb,

If you have to ask about it, and your in Maryland, it is illegal. MD Law regarding vehicles is one of the most strict I have ever heard of.

Personally I have the windshield lights on my jeep, I haven't used them while driving though because I know what it is like to be blinded by a large vehicle who likes to play with they're lights, its infuriating. But I wouldn't let the fact that you can't drive with them on down the highway deter you.

I love mine, shine them on my friends cars and houses and act like the 5-0 all the time. They have many uses outside of driving with them, I mostly use them to light up the yard when I am working at night, or at the park with some friends.

fdkss03 anything above the headlights and above 50watts is illegal i believe.

backroads are fine, i just turn them off when is see a car coming.

tantryan Haha, I used to have a light bar on the top but decided to take it off, but I used to drive down dark roads with them on and it was just awesome seeing the power of them. So kept the KCs and threw them on the front bumper.

phils89wrangler I've done the same thing to ppl

jjusmc77 I have them and I use them all the time. Just make sure to cut them off if another car comes because they are blinding. It's also fun when someone flashes their brights at you when they think your brights are on and you kick on the kc's and you can see their reaction while their driving. Classic.

I have, I couldn't find anything that said that it was illegal or legal. Even went to the DMV website and they did not give me any information.

Windshield lights

I was wondering if it is illegal to drive on the highway with windshield side lights. I've never seen anyone use them so I assume it is; however, I'm sure someone has to know.
