Indeed it is. It's cheaper to get it fixed than it is to pay for a ticket.

Why would you?

Yes, because the two headlights define the width of your car allowing oncoming drivers to pass you safely.

if the motorcycle has one headlight then you're fine

If the car was factory made with one headlight, you're fine. For example, it is legal to drive these cars (picture below) with one headlight on.

Russian military vehicles like the Gaz were assembled with one headlight due to material shortages, so if you have one of those, it's legal to drive with one headlight on.

Yes- you will get pulled over for it and issued a warning. You'll have a period of time to get it fixed and if you don't and get pulled over a second time, you'll get a ticket. It's not worth it, get it replaced.

Illegal and you will be ticketed. It is very dangerous to oncoming drivers, as they will be unable to see where your vehicle is in relation to theirs. A car with one headlight looks like a motorcycle. Get it repaired or replaced immediately.

yes you can get a ticket for improper equipment,,and you either pay it,,or get it repaired,,and if you go to court they always dismiss the majority of them,, i have had a bunch of them,,they don't count against you as points on your license,,but after the third one they wont dismiss them any more,,i think 3 in one year is all your allowed to get dismissed,,good luck,,i hope this help,s.

Yes, it's illegal to drive with only one headlight. You'll get stopped and get a ticket. It's cheaper to go and get the headlight lamp replaced.


Lemons
Yep!


kar_summers
Yes it is. It is an equipment violation and you will have to fix it before you can pay the ticket. Non-moving violation, no points.
