We ran into problems on our semi trucks with LED tail-lights - they don't put out enough heat to melt the snow off, and the trucks were getting ticketed for not having working tail lights when they drove through snow storms. Eventually had to go back to incandescent lights because of this.

Easy solution for the problem on headlights though - wipers. Wouldn't add any power draw to the vehicle unless it was raining, and I believe some countries already require them for HID headlamps.
