Trentski on the "newranger.net" forum found this vehicles standard instruction regarding light bars fitted to fronts of vehicles....

http://www.cviaq.com.au/PDFs/VSI%20HV25.0%20Driving%20Lamps.pdf

I find it a bit of laugh and that some bright (pardon the pun) spark in the QLD government has come up with a brilliant solution to making them look like two lights meeting ADR13/00 requirements.

Apparently you have to have driving lights fitted in pairs and it has to be distinguishable to anyone looking at the front of your vehicle when they are turned on..... my thoughts are why the hell would you need to be able to see two driving lights when one; they should not be turned on and two at 500m I can not tell how many lights are on... all I can see is one BIG glow.

You have to shake your head in disbelief.

Try this link: VEHICLE STANDARDS INSTRUCTION

In my opinion, people shouldn't fit lights etc to their vehicles before they ascertain if they are legal or not.

It does apply to all those items actually. It is illegal to modify a vehicle from the way it was manufactured when its compliance plate was fitted without approval for the modifications from the licensing authority in the jurisdiction in which the vehicle is registered.

Old news I'm afraid Richard. This has already been discussed on Thread 98126.

But I do agree with your thoughts. Don't let reality get in the way of a great bureaucratic proposition!!
