2020-02-27 - Headlight Protection

The BCCR addresses protection of taillight and brake lights as:

9.9.6. All glass and/or plastic taillight and brake light lenses that may be damaged from vehicle contact are to be taped-over with clear packaging or another strong clear tape. Do not use Scotch tape.

Presumably, headlights can be protected as well (last year lug nut impact fun...). Can we use a car model specific clear molded plastic headlight protective cover as a no-points option to putting tape over headlights?
