Marker lights above step bars and getting inspections

I have added 2 and am thinking of adding 2 more per side over the step bars. Has anyone gone through inspection with side lights? How about the 3 in the grill? The statute says:

WV Code Chapter 17C Article 15
§17C-15-19. Additional lighting equipment.
(b) Any motor vehicle may be equipped with not more than one running board courtesy lamp on each side thereof which shall emit a white or amber light without glare.


§17C-15-12. Visibility of reflectors, clearance lamps and marker lamps.
(a) Every reflector upon any vehicle referred to in section nine of this article shall be of such size and characteristics and so maintained as to be readily visible at nighttime from all distances within five hundred feet to fifty feet from the vehicle when directly in front of lawful upper beams of head lamps. Reflectors required to be mounted on the sides of the vehicle shall reflect the required color of light to the sides, and those mounted on the rear shall reflect a red color to the rear.


§17C-15-12. Visibility of reflectors, clearance lamps and marker lamps.
(c) Side marker lamps shall be capable of being seen and distinguished under normal atmospheric conditions at the times lights are required at a distance of five hundred feet from the side of the vehicle on which mounted.

Most likely the inspector will only make sure that they work and not about the quantity.
