Is it illegal to have the inside light on while driving?

(in the US) If the light is 'directional' (e.g.: a reading light only for the passenger) no, probably not. However, if it is a light for the general illumination of the car's interior, it could be considered a distracting element which destroys the driver's night vision and might be considered an "obstruction to vision." So while it may not be illegal (per se) to have an interior light lit while driving, the condition that it may cause (or lead to) is.
