States cannot enact their own equipment laws for vehicles. Thats the feds job. The feds say you can have as many lights as you want on the front of your car as long as no more than 4 are lighted at once. That ticket is an easy win.
Almost every state has it's own laws that dictate equipment on personal vehicles...
For example, in CA, you can receive a citation for driving with off road lights, even if they are off, if they are not physically covered on the highway.
|24411. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a vehicle may be equipped with not more than eight lamps for use as headlamps while the vehicle is operated or driven off the highway. The lamps shall be mounted at a height of not less than 16 inches from the ground, or more than 12 inches above the top of the passenger compartment, at any place between the front of the vehicle and a line lying on a point 40 inches to the rear of the seat occupied by the driver, shall be wired independently of all other lighting circuits, and, whenever the vehicle is operated or driven upon a highway, shall be covered or hooded with an opaque hood or cover, and turned off.|
