Driving around with neons on is pretty much illegal EVERYWHERE. Try searching your states website or search on google. thumbsup

Yeah basically as a rule of thumb...it's illegal to have any fancy lights anywhere. if your headlights are too bright they'll pull you over...turn signals, side marker lights, taillights if they're different colors or tinted, any non-amber or white colored lights they'll try to nail you for if they feel like it.

they are legal if installed properly and they are colors found on lights in the car already, this limits you to white and amber..

neons are illegal if they are red or blue, or if the bulbs themselves are visible. If you have a blue light permit (such as for being on FIRE / EMS ) then you can get away with the blue neon kits on the bottom. Most of the other colors are legal, as long as the bulbs are not visible, you must only see the illumination of the lights.

here in nc it is only illegal if they are red or blue. the statute says something about not being about to add any aftermarket red lights to the car and no cars are allowed to have any blue lights installed whether they are on or off. thumbsdown spineyes

U CAN drive w/ underbody neons just as long as you are not able to see the tubings. U have to really hide the tubes. If U do get pulled over and get a ticket then just take pictures of the, car w/ the neons on, at all angles of the car. Bring them to court and the case will be dismissed. Worked for me thumbsup

Someone asked "with streetglow...how do you turn them off?"...you just hook it up to a switch...it's not on all the time.

I really wanna get underbody neons but i'm not allowed because my parents say it's illegal...which it is right? Does anyone know the law for PA? I have blue neons on the inside so i wanted to get blue for the outside too...if i can hide them well enough so that you can't see the tubes themselves will i be ok?

ya, even in cali which is the most anal state, the law only states the light from a neon device must be indirectly visible (meaning reflected), so that leads us to 1.) Hide your tubes and 2.) Why would you wanted to be that guy driving around with his tubes hanging down swinging in the air?
