All motor vehicles in Texas are required to have two working headlights that are white in color. It's also important that your headlights aren't obscured by a cover or grill. Bulbs must have a "DOT" or appropriate SAE stamp on them. This really only becomes an issue with some aftermarket lights that are not equipped from the auto manufacturer.

1. Purpose. Headlight laws serve a dual purpose. The first is that they ensure that an altered vehicle can be seen from the rear view mirrors of a leading vehicle, which can be a problem for frame-dragging custom cars.
2. Headlight Height Requirements. Headlight heights are always measured from ground level to the center of the lowest bulb on a vehicle's headlight assembly.
3. Impact Effects. Headlight height has more to do with bumper height than anything else, which has everything to do with crash protection. Bumpers that are too high will hit the weak glass or B-pillar (the center roof support) on another vehicle should those vehicles collide in a side impact.
4. Fog-Lights and Headlights. Headlight heights are measured from the location of the lowest of a vehicle's stock headlight location, not from grille or bumper-mounted fog-lights (which are considered "auxiliary" by most states).
5. Additional Lights. No state explicitly forbids mounting additional lights on a vehicle's roof, hood or roll-bar for use off road. Some local jurisdictions regulate how high the lights may be mounted, but most are fine as long as they're under 13 feet 6 inches.
