might want to read above homie. the only thing they could do is construe some if you had red. but any color other than that and you are home free. if anyone has led's with over 300 candlepower that reflect on the roadway over 75 feet they are insane anyhow.

Seems any color is fine, as long as it's not flashing - or has a high intensity beam lighting the road directly at 75 ft. Hazard-warning flashing LED's are only 134 candlepower - so there's no way you'll ever get a little LED to create enough light to worry about it....

I dunno what he uses, but I use the LED blocks from EPO in bay area. $3/light. Each one has two sets of wires on each side to daisy chain and then 3 leds in the block with strong adhesive on the back that sticks to the backside of plastics perfectly.
