  • Legally you need to use lights, yes.

  • If the highbeams work use them.

  • no. you're more likely to get pulled over for that,plus its very rude to other drivers

  • I would use the high beams, if you get pulled over just explain the situation. If they give you a citation for it, it will just be a fix-it ticket.

  • Use them, it's just temporary and it's not safe to go without. I don't think anyones going to care, if they do they will get over it, probably about a minute after they go by.....

  • How far is it to school?

  • depends. you could make seeing a lot harder for the person coming at you, and then running into you because they are blinded might make things worse. If you have the lights that are orange and smaller in the front i would use those and just drive slower.
