    In short.... No you can't have blue lights.

    Taken from Section 62(1) of the Highway Traffic Act:

    When on a highway at any time from one-half hour before sunset to one-half hour after sunrise and at any other time when, due to insufficient light or unfavourable atmospheric conditions, persons and vehicles on the highway are not clearly discernible at a distance of 150 metres or less, every motor vehicle other than a motorcycle shall carry three lighted lamps in a conspicuous position, one on each side of the front of the vehicle which shall display a white or amber light only, and one on the rear of the vehicle which shall display a red light only.

    Probably not the answer you wanted to hear, but there it is....

    I don't know very much about these lights, but I would imagine if they meet the minimum requirement for visibility you should be good to go.

    From Section 62(6) of the Highway Traffic Act:

    Lamps on the front of a motor vehicle shall be so constructed, located, arranged and adjusted that when lighted as required by subsections (1), (2) and (3) they produce under normal atmospheric conditions and on a level road a driving light sufficient to render clearly discernible to the operator of the motor vehicle any person or vehicle on the highway within a distance of 110 metres ahead of the motor vehicle.

    Somewhat related in that it is about after market head lights.

    Is there a max light output from your head lights provided they are aimed so as not to dazzle oncoming traffic?

    Also is an e-code beam pattern legal on Ontario streets or do you have to use a dot beam pattern?

    LOL This is WAY beyond my scope of expertise. For something as technical as this, I would definitely contact Transport Canada, as they set the standards for these types of things.

    Here is a link to the Technical Standards document dealing with requirements for lighting/reflectors in Canada. It is in there somewhere I am sure!

    Wish I could help more...

    Lamps

    Lamps required on all motor vehicles except motorcycles

    62. (1) When on a highway at any time from one-half hour before sunset to one-half hour after sunrise and at any other time when, due to insufficient light or unfavourable atmospheric conditions, persons and vehicles on the highway are not clearly discernible at a distance of 150 metres or less, every motor vehicle other than a motorcycle shall carry three lighted lamps in a conspicuous position, one on each side of the front of the vehicle which shall display a white or amber light only, and one on the rear of the vehicle which shall display a red light only. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 62 (1).

    Lamps required on motorcycles

    (2) Subject to subsection (3), when on a highway at any time every motorcycle shall carry two lighted lamps in a conspicuous position, one on the front of the vehicle which shall display a white light only, and one on the rear of the vehicle which shall display a red light only. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 62 (2).


    Strength of front lamps

    (9) No motor vehicle shall carry on the front thereof more than four lighted lamps that project a beam having an intensity of over 300 candela. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 62 (9).


    I highlighted the section that pertains to your question specifically. However take it's for what its worth most officers don't carry the required device/s to measure candela. However that doesnt mean you cant piss enough people off with too bright of lights.

    ^ Great...... do you have any info on the "e-code" beam pattern?

    LOL guess I was trying to get too technical with my answer.....It doesn't really explain whether that is 300 candela each, or a combination. I'd be interested to know, but admittedly I do not carry anything that could measure that.

    Basically, if your headlights are WAY bright, you might get stopped and asked about them.

    As far as I am aware there is nowhere in the HTA of Ontario that involves using any law in regards to having the rating of "D.O.T." being required on any item. I could be mistaken but I have yet to ever be shown any formal Government document pertaining to Ontario requiring it on any item either. This makes sense since Ontario has the MTO not DOT.

    Actually, the Technical Standards document I linked, does in fact reference DOT for headlamp requirements. DOT is the Federal standard for motor vehicle safety and equipment. The Province follows the schedules as set out in the Federal standards.

    You won't find any standards as such in the Highway Traffic Act.... that would be for enforcement purposes such as "Unsafe Vehicle".

    An example would be if you import a vehicle from the US, it must meet the Canadian standards to be allowed in.

    S7. Headlighting requirements
    S7.1 [Untitled]

    Each passenger car, multipurpose passenger vehicle, truck, and bus manufactured on or after September 1, 1994, shall be equipped with a headlighting system designed to conform to the requirements of S7.3, S7.4, S7.5, or S7.6.
    S7.2 [Untitled]


    (25)

    (a) The lens of each original and replacement equipment headlamp, and of each original equipment and replacement equipment beam contributor shall be marked with the symbol "DOT" either horizontally or vertically which shall constitute the certification required by 49 U.S.C. 30115.

    (b) The lens of each headlamp and of each beam contributor manufactured on or after December 1, 1989, to which paragraph (a) of this section applies shall be marked with the name and/or trademark registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office of the manufacturer of such headlamp or beam contributor, or its importer, or any manufacturer of a vehicle equipped with such headlamp or beam contributor. Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed to authorize the marking of any such name and/or trademark by one who is not the owner, unless the owner has consented to it.

    (c) Each headlamp and beam contributor to which paragraph (a) of this section applies shall be marked with its voltage and with its part or trade number.

    (d) Unless stated otherwise, a tolerance of 0.25 degree is permitted during photometric performance tests for any headlamp or beam contributor, and the test points 10U-90U shall be measured from the normally exposed surface of the lens face. The term "aiming plane" means "aiming reference plane" or an appropriate vertical plane defined by the manufacturer as required in S7.7.1.

    (e) [CONTENT DELETED]
