I live in rural Ontario with lots of deer and moose and lots of dark roads. I was looking into putting extra driving lights or off road lights on my SUV to help me avoid a collision with these animals. What are the rules regarding street legal auxiliary lights? Can extra driving lights be mounted on the roof of the vehicle or do they have to be at the same level as the stock headlamps? How many auxiliary lights can be added? Is there a restriction of how bright they can be?

So what I got from reading this is I cannot have more then two extra auxiliary driving lights and it would be illegal to mount them on the roof of an suv? I'm assuming the roof is above 54 inches.

so i drive a 97 ram with 4 mounted lights on my roof, you stated previously about "spot lamps" the lights i have are flood lamps, the four forward facing light law stated my stock headlights must be 2 of those 4, i got pulled over for improper use of spot lamp with 2 roof flood lamps lit yet the ticket states improper use of spot lamps, the section on the ticket is 62 (22), is this still accurate?

Also...

ACT62:

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)

in all reality.. you can argue all these if it's a secluded road outside the city...
