Ok, so I recently installed my green LEDs inside... I got a 4 piece but really only planned for my footwells. Left with 2 tubes left, I decided to light up the sides of the back, sounds weird but check the pics. I think it looks great from outside, and inside too. I'm not going to change it becuase other people might not like it, and all my feedback so far is good. My question is, is this legal? And since it probably isn't, then I'll just use em for show... :(

theres is a lighting page on here on most states laws about that, u might want to search on here. IMO I think that green is def not cool, I have blue leds under my dash and I also have tan interior, i think it looks nice but my car is dover white and it flows well, but to each his own, jst make sure it the lighting does not bother other drivers, cus then u might get pulled over.

Looks good. I'm not one for green but it's nice. As far as legality, in LA, I haven't heard of a law about interior lighting. I know that if we have neons under the car/truck, then they must be off while driving. Parked is ok though.

first... I got them off ledunderbody.com Me and my friend have them and I trust them fully, cheap with great products. He also has underglow from them and loves it...

second... ya I'll search for that, I did originally but didn't find it, guess I didn't look far enough. But as for green, the camera distorts it a bit so this obviously isn't exactly what your eye would see, but like i said in my starter, I don't really care what people think of the color cuz I like it a lot. And the other thing is, my friend who got me into mods has blue LEDs interior and exterior and I didn't want to roll up next to him and look the same, that would just be weird.

The search I got didn't give any real laws for my state on interior lighting. Also could not find it through google. Some people say as long as you cant see light source. Others say as long as you cant see any different color. But if that's true, how do people get away with DVD players?

I doubt he can give you a ticket for obstruction of view, its light, you can see through light, i really dont see it blocking your view at all.

I've driven around a little in a parking lot so its legal. I had no problem with seeing around, plus since I got the windows tinted yesterday, its much less noticable than before... The pics are with the tint tho so it's still enough of a glow that I think I'd probably better just leave it off except for show.

with the way cops are on my end their use a story about a old woman getting blinding at night by the light or thinking its a way different light they always make a stupid story up but i hear u only the light thing i hardly doubt it blinds anyone i know i didn't

:) Ya, guarantee if I'm at a red light, cops will arrest me just because they would think my green would make people go.

My question is, is this legal?
Check with your local/state laws. If the glare is a distraction to you or other drivers, you most likely will be cited for it. Until you know for sure, I recommend keeping them off unless you're off the street.

Umm.. ok - I don't see how this has anything to do with his question.

My bad. I just looked for the thread with his pictures in it so I could put mine with it.

So because you drove in a parking lot makes it legal? lol

I think your more likely to get harrased if the light shines up past the clockpod where drivers behind can also see it. Anything from the windows down IMO is ok. Dont drive with them on and you wont be harrased, Also instead of making people go you better make sure they dont run into the back of your car!!!!!!!!!

Its not legal, its still illegal. You can get pulled over for speeding in a parking lot, its not a "safe zone." :noplease:

I never said I was speeding in a parking lot... and you can't get pulled over for speeding in a parking lot if theres no posted speed. Reckless Driving, you could be screwed for... and anyways when I said it's legal driving in a parking lot, I mean having the lights on. It's off road. Cops have never done shit if I have them on there and I haven't found a law against it.

I've heard that you can't have the same color lights as the cops in your state. I.E. red, red/blue, blue. Well, N.C. at least. But thats just what I have heard.

Wow you can't read can you. I was giving you an example of how the parking lot is not a "safe zone". I was talking about how you could still get a ticket. And in most parking lots there is a speed limit and if there isn't and your driving like a moron, like you said you can be cited for reckless driving.

Oh and if "cops have never done shit" go pull up to a cop and turn your lights on. I GUARANTEE you will get a ticket.
