I think you meant to say on ALL vehicles. I have never seen a fog light in colors other than white or yellow.

nope you are incorrect, in 98 (I think) they changed the law on color classification, any "emergency" vehicle may display a flashing or alternating light of any color on all sides showing in any direction. Wreckers(tow trucks) are NOT emergency vehicles no more than the power company meter trucks are. any heavy vehicle(trash trucks,wreckers,busses,too many to list) may have an amber flashing light that is visible from any direction as a warning beacon.

any light that is NOT prohibited by statute(law) may be displayed on any part of the vehicle. period.

that of course doesn't mean mr. po po isn't gonna give ya over it, they have no idea what the law acutually says and don't care what it acutally says

So I finally got a the actual citation from the courts and it reads:

"Unauthorized use of FLASHING (Red)(Blue) Light"

Of course my LEDs do not flash. I do not think that a solid blue light is actually illegal based off this citation because they dont have a specific citation for just lights.

Time to go to court.

I just dont put anything on my bikes or cars that would make a cop take a second look: window tint, vinyl stickers, *** lights, loud exhaust, spinners, etc.

WOW....!! Seem like the pig was aware that you were NOT in violation of any law and change the ticket to say "flashing". Now the objective is how to show evidence that the lights do not flash???

OK....After all this, can we conclude that a non-flashing blue light in the back will be legal????
