Anyone in Washington know the laws about underbody neons?

I was under the impression these are illegal if the car is in motion. Just wondering if anyone in WA has been ticketed or warned about these, before I install a set on my Celi. Also are there certain colors that are totally illegal? IE: Red or Blue? I have a Black Celi, and want to install Red underbody neons to match my footwells. I've heard different things, just wondering if anyone knows the 'real deal' with regard to the law.

WA State or WA D.C.?

In WA State, underbody neons are illegal in ANY color while the car is in motion. So if you get them, just plan on using them while you're parked.

I couldn't find anything on the D.O.L.'s website. Maybe you should make a call to the State Patrol. I'm sure they'd be happy to tell you laughsilly

yes guys!! those neons are very much illegal in the STATE OF WASHINGTON..its funny i never experienced it before till afew weeks ago when i was driving around with a few guys when one of my boys got pulled over cause his underbody neon was on while in motion..wierd think is he didn't get a ticket because his neon came on and off so the officer told him to get it fixed and only use it when parked.

OK, so they are legal, but only when the car is parked?

By the way, what color are his neons?
