The fact that the fuse keeps blowing demonstrates there is a fault. Using an over-rated fuse could cause a fire in the wiring or damage to some of the wiring looms - neither of which would be a cheap fix. Have you checked the relevant bulbs or tried replacements - it is not unknown for a bulb to fail and cause a short circuit. It would also be prudent to check if any of the lights have suffered from water leaks - quite a common problem and ensure all contacts are clean and sound.
Additionally I suggest you get it sorted - much better than getting 3 points on your licience or causing an accident.
