Yep.

And marketing departments need to stop. You'd think the *legal* department would be on top of that.

The DOT does not "approve" anything, therefore "DOT approved" is meaningless, or rather it's a lie.

Unscrupulous advertisers buying ad space to inject their malware. It's rather like opening your favorite magazine, and instead of a full-page ad for a toolbox, it shoots out anthrax.

It doesn't stop there. They sell headlamp bulbs with blue tinting over the entire envelope, and then say "Superwhite Beam Creates Natural Light Color". They offer a 9004 with 100W/80W filaments;...

Why wouldn't we want them to be compliant? They NEED to be compliant to be safe.

Compliance isn't some secret recipe that isn't being shared.

So, you want to see photometric compliance reports on these "bulbs" in a range of factory lamp assemblies? Is that what it'll take? I'll see if I can find any I can share with you (for proprietary...

The documents with their implicit and explicit declarations are there. If your reading comprehension is that poor, just say so, so we can recommend a local Sylvan Learning Center.

If the bulb is different to the point that it changes the pattern of the lamp, it's illegal (and it doesn't require much of a change).
