yet another "is this illegal?" thread

Would it be illegal to have red in the dome light? I wonder about this since it is visible from around the car. unlike footwell neons.

I'd imagine it's OK, as long as you don't have it on while driving...

ok then, what if I got stopped by a cop (for speeding or something) and had to turn it on; would he hassle me about it? Would it just depend on the cop's mood?

It would depend on the cop, those bastards. Of coarse if a dickhead cop sees it, they will hassle you. But i really dont think that you can get a ticket for that. thumbsup thumbsup

yea probably depends on the officer. if he is a real dick he'll prolly right you a ticket for it if its illegal or not and you have to go to court to prove him wrong. i've had mine on for over a year and no one said anythign about it tho. cept you cant see shit when its on tongue

not illegal as long as its off while driving, just like a regular white dome light,at least in cali. mine was red for a while but like ghost sadi you cant see shit, but if you turn it on just for a sec to look at somethin while you're driving, you may be in trouble, because its a "flashing red light." my doorwell neons flash and i forgot to turn them off "pulse" and a cop rolled up next to me and gave me a bunch of shit but i whined and bitched my way out of it. cry thumbsup
