sinned is an unknown quantity at this point

Yeah, i hate it when the police do the job they are paid to do. F&^cking cops always giving people tickets just breaking the law...laws are stupid anyways, why do we even have them?

Any "stupid" law on the books is there because someone did something "stupid" that requires enforcement of said driving around blinding people with improperly aimed behind the grill daylighters on the highway. Were conditions so bad that necessitated high powered lamps?

I would not recommend the "ignorance" card in court. It is overused and pisses judges off. Ignorance is not an excuse to violate vehicle code or any other law. The lawyer method is probably the best approach. Your argument about auxiliary lighting is also invalid because irregardless of any other vehicle code,"the duty to display code" trumps all over exceptions. Just because another section says you may have auxiliary lights, you still may not operate more then 4 forward facing white lights at any time for any reason on a public roadway.
If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.
