Is it illegal to have a spotlight in New York State on your car?
I am a Process Server in the state of New York and need the light to help me see at night numbers on mailboxes etc.

The placement and functionality of lights on your car is regulated by Vehicle & Traffic Law section 376. As long as the lights are not dangerous and have approved lenses, you should have no problem. Also, police cars must obey all the sections of the law, so if they have the lights, you can have the lights. (Unless the lights are limited to police vehicles, like the flashing lights on top of the car.)
