Post by dakardrix on 20th October 2009, 13:21

Reading about Dave's Osram Nightbreakers, I was reminded to send info to Gemmerkat on the legality of non-white headlights.

Here is a discussion on it from the Wild Dogs...

http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=38037.0


...and the mentioned Act:

http://www.acts.co.za/rt_nrta/regs_181_colour_of_lights.htm

National Road Traffic Act, 1996
National Road Traffic Regulations, 1999
Chapter VI : Fitness of Vehicles
Part II : Equipment on or in respect of vehicles
181. Colour of lights

1) Subject to the provisions of regulation 170(1), 171(1), 172, 175 or 176, no person shall operate on a public road a motor vehicle which is fitted with or carries on it a lamp which
a) except in the case of a brake anti-lock warning light to the front of a trailer, emits a light which is not white, amber or yellow in colour towards the front;
b) emits a light which is not yellow or amber in colour towards either side of the motor vehicle; or
c) except in the case of a direction indicator or reversing lamp complying with the provisions of these regulations, emits a light which is not red in colour towards the rear.
2) When two or more lamps of the same class emitting light in the same direction are fitted to a vehicle they shall emit light of the same colour.



I'm still not 100% convinced that it is legal, but a printed copy of such Act is good enough for me to approach a road-side argument. rabbit
