    I don't want to see "last post by evillancer" in the column anymore. This is why I post here.

    yours isnt half as bad as mine. i pulled into my driveway after work, my windows were rolled down, the cops just happen to be accross my house for whatever fucking reason. walks accross the street and says roll your windows up. then tickets me, infront of my house as my dad pulls in.

    my shit was completely done from the dealership, car was like that when i picked it up. brand fucking new too

    So I know DRLs are to be white or amber only, but is there any laws about placement of said lights? Ie front bumper or as fog lights?

    Also for the part that states a person may not apply anything that adds coloration to the headlamp, does thar include headlight tint, which darkens as opposed to changes color output?

    If it was in the city then if I recall correctly use of high beams within city limits is against the law, so that would be why u got the ticket. Not cuz ur fog lights were on. As for ticket wording dunno bout that one. Talk to one of those traffic defense lawyers, most of them do free evaluations

    Fog lights and hi beams can not be used at the same time, hi beams can not be used in the city.

    It's not okay actually. But I have yet to ever see or even hear about any stories relating to HIDs being installed in Halogen housings.

    "
    (4) The light from a headlamp must be white, and the lens and bulb of the headlamp must be made of clear, untinted glazing."

    Does that mean that 8000k hid is actually illegal? Seems like that is pretty common.

    And is there anything against yellow fogs? I always turn mine off if I see a police vehicle around just in case,

    I was rear ended and my license plate had a clear cover over it, according to the cop they are illegal too.

    Pretty sure blue bulbs are illegal all together.

    Yeah markers have to be amber/yellow/orange... somewhere in that part of the color spectrum I believe.

    The only way around these is if the car was made before the law was in place.

    Ex in my dads '53 chev, we don't have to have, wear or otherwise utilize seat belts. But we do since it has crazy power (700! )

    I ran 8000k for a while now and have never been bothered, even sitting right behind cops and they don't say anything.
