Google is your friend. Every state is different. Look up your state's laws.

as far as i know it is illegal to have red lights on the front of your vehicle unless it is an emergency vehicle, but i have been wrong from time to time, my opion is to save yourself some unwanted attention, and don't do it

Like Rlong31 stated it varies from state to state. In SC you can only have amber lights. But I do run red bulbs in the turn signals and corner lights and never have had an issue. I guess due to the fact it looks stock they don't realize it. And may be the fact i'm also the 5-0 lol

I personally just think it is a bad idea and shouldnt be done. Its just like having neon lights, they are illegal to run unless you are parked.

I have these with no issues, but they are under the doors. They're on when the lights are on.
