Some drivers who get rear ended end up 50% at fault if their tails aren't legal.
I checked first...in MO it's legal if the lights are visible from a certain distance

Default Re: just got my new LED Tails in today!!!!

Illegal in Cali, but everyone still does it. I've had mine tinted for years, from stock tails to newer ones. Never been pulled over for either the tails nor 3rd brake light. *Knocks on wood*

Btw, those are some nice LED tails. My friend has them on his and I've always liked them.

I'm pretty sure it's illegal here too, but it's such a grey area that the cops don't care. I've had cops behind me and had no problem

Everytime a troll makes a stupid comment on a forum, I think of the quote, "Don't worry. He just found out that he is an *******". If you aren't familiar, it was said in the movie Tommy Boy.

I think you mean "the state in which you live" not "my state" because I don't think that you are the governor of Florida.

Most add-on products are legal, and personally, I won't necessarily customize my vehicle, but to each his/her own. I actually commend people that want to uniquely identify their ride.

If the taillights can still be seen, it is a lot better than the numerous drivers I witness at night driving w/o a functioning headlight or taillight.

no, the anzos look cool and all, but they have that body line in the plastic around the reverse light area. not something i want. mine are spyder/sonar and are flush and smooth all the way across.

and yeah they are illegal in texas too as of last year, but so is speeding, and a rolling stop at stop sign, changing lanes without a blinker, off-roading, littering and littering and littering and smoking the reefer, and just about everything else that everyone does. so who cares people, worry bout urself. plus dont mess with texas

Being a resident, applies ownership (states are compromised of individuals, and in the United States at least (not all countries), which is a government based off 'the people') it is correct. Don't identify correct terminology as incorrect.

No intention of being a douche by correcting you, just a pet-peeve of seeing misinformation.
