LED lightbars and axillary lights are becoming more common, especially on back roads where deer and elk are prevalent. If you choose to use them on the public roadways in Colorado, please follow State law so you don't blind other drivers. In addition to your headlights, you are allowed a maximum of two auxiliary driving lights (your lightbar would fall into this category). This means that if your vehicle was equipped with two auxiliary lights when it was manufactured, you can't use your lightbar in conjunction with your headlights on public roadways. To use them on a public roadway, the auxiliary lights must be mounted between 16 and 42 inches from the ground. Just like headlights, your auxiliary lights must not direct high intensity light into the eyes of oncoming drivers, so you essentially need to be able to turn them off when approaching other drivers. Remember, blue, red and green lights are reserved for emergency and command vehicles only. Please do not use those colors for your auxiliary lights. Thank you, Fremont County!
