Headlight Modulators

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by dan, Mar 10, 2005.

  1. Probably find that the technology is pretty rare in Australia and therefore there hasn't been any legislation for or against it. Telephone your local road regulation authority in QLD, they should be able to assist.
     
  2. Hmm - suspect that they'd seriously stuff up headlamp life - turning the lamp off/on 4 times a second. It's the thermal stress as they turn on & off that usually kills incandescent bulbs - particularly halogen types.
     
  3. Road Safety (Vehicles) Regulations 1999
    Version No. 014
    Road Safety (Vehicles) Regulations 1999
    S.R. No. 29/1999
    SCHEDULE 8--VEHICLE STANDARDS
    PART 8--LIGHTS AND REFLECTORS
    Division 2--Headlights
    (3) A motor cycle may be equipped with a headlight modulation system that--
    (a) varies the brightness of its high-beam headlight or low-beam headlight,
    but not both, at a rate of at least 200 and at most 280 flashes a minute;
    and
    (b) is designed to operate only in the daytime.

    Hope this helps
