I refuse to remove my yellow DRL's, I will fight the ticket in court if i get yanked for it.


Burnaby RCMP seem to have no issues with me blinding them in the mornings with my hids and hid fogs. My car lights up an RCMP cruiser nicely....lmao

6000 k hids and I honestly do not know what my fog hids are but they are bright.


I will figure out a way to get out of the VI as well, not sure yet but will figure something out.

Are they matching your 6k low though? :) Let me know if you have a way to get out of a VI since it was just because of the yellow DRLS :) but in your case.. you have a testpipe.. so if u get a vi then u have to put back your stock testpipe? do cops even know where the cat converter on r18 is located?

Cop will have to have a search warrant to go through my car, they need justification to search your car including popping hood or trunk.

Worse comes to worse if i have to I will put the engine mods back to stock, the test pipe takes no time to install.

Headlamps

4.05 (1) A motor vehicle must be equipped with either one or 2 headlamps mounted on each side of the front of the vehicle and capable of displaying white light.
yellow drls dont make the headlights incapable of displaying white light. you still have your lowbeams which are white right?

one headlamp = your whole headlight correct? one headlight consists of 1 yellow drl/yellow highbeam bulb (its 1 bulb for both). 1 lowbeam bulb which is white (this is the one thats changed when hids are installed). as long as each headlight has at least 1 kind of bulb that displays white light, which it should as long as you have a halogen lowbeam or legal hids, you should be ok. thats my interpretation of it anyways. i have a csx so correct me if civic headlights have a different number of bulbs or what not.

That sucks!!! Crazy thing is the here in the states, Acura Vigors, RL's and TL's came with yellow fog lights.
i have yellow drl's also for almost 2 years. never got pulled over in vancouver burnaby richmond ***, even in the states and victoria.... as someone said the camaro has yellow drl's as stock...
Lexus ES300 came stock with yellow fogs, I see them all the time.
Well, that is because they're DOT approval, most aftermarket color bulbs are not DOT approval so meaning they're illegal and you're using them at your own risk on the street.

Same with HID headlights, the OEM one are legal but the Aftermarket one aren't. Why? Because the OEM one are approved by the Department of Transportation.

On a side note, some states have different laws pertaining to this subject.

"headlamp" means a lamp, mounted on a motor vehicle, that is capable of displaying white light, the rays of which are projected forward, but does not include a spotlamp, cowl lamp, parking lamp, fog lamp, clearance lamp, auxiliary driving lamp or daytime running lamp;

Nothing there about being allowed any other colour than white.

just so were clear. im not arguing with you. im just trying to understand what your saying lol.

you said headlamp does not include the daytime running lamp. the law said only the headlamp needs to display white light. so if the daytime running lamp isnt included as a headlamp, it isnt included in the law? doesnt that mean it could be yellow?

I will try to talk to the guys that pull over the big trucks(commericial Vehicle inspection) and what not today....they work next door and I see them all the time. I asked 3 of them 2 weeks ago about this and they said that yellow DRL's are legal.

If i can get something written from them or get them to call the RCMP in richmond I will.
