B.Y.O.LED

I just finished my Led, I think I did pretty good, best part is when you start the engine the red lights that face forward turn off, if that is enough to be legal is debatable but I think they look great. 9 sets total.

I thought as long as they stay one color and do not flash / fade they were legal?

It is not the function of the Department of Public Safety to provide legal interpretations of the Texas Transportation Code, nor is it the role of anyone in the department to dispense legal advice even regarding the traffic laws of the state. The department enforces state traffic law as its members understand it, and if necessary, issue citations for violations, all which are subject to review by courts of law.

Section 547.004 of the Texas Transportation Code prohibits the operation of a vehicle that is unsafe, not equipped in compliance, with the law, or equipped in a prohibited manner by the Transportation Code. Some would take this to mean that if the lamp is not required under Texas law, nor fits an exception, then it is prohibited, particularly if it can be shown as a distraction to other drivers or a driving hazard. Motorcycle lighting requirements can be found in 547.801 and the general statutory restriction on vehicle lighting is 547.305, but neither specifically addresses after-market lighting. Only DOT approved equipment properly installed is definitely compliant with state and federal regulations, and that much add-on equipment is sold for off-road or show use only and is not necessarily legal for highway use.

Section 547.3215 adopts the federal motor vehicle safety standard (FMVSS) for lighting (49 CFR 571.108) for all lighting and associated equipment, unless specifically prohibited by the code. FMVSS #108 prohibits anything that interferes with or obscures federal required lighting equipment. However it does not prohibit, nor regulate, after-market lighting equipment not meant to replace original equipment manufacturer (OEM) lighting. After-market lighting that is not DOT approved and used to replace original lighting may be illegal under Texas law if the equipment violates any provision of Chapter 547, particularly Subchapters D and
