Damn cops. Its the second time and it was the same cop. The first time he was unsure about the laws regarding the sidemarkers so he let me go. This time he let me go again, but told me to change them b/c he looked it up and said that i can't have it. The bulbs on mine are white, not blue or red so there's nothing illegal as far as i knew about the side markers. I'm in michigan btw, north of detroit. Where do i go to look for the laws on lighting on motor vehicles so i can be knowledged next time he stops me.

yea, I thought if it blinks it has to be amber. If not, it can be white? Correct me, if wrong. But, then again I'm in california so this may be wrong in your case.

Some people always get picked on by cops, others can have a bunch of illegal crap and never get caught.

A good friend of mine drives a 2001 altima, and hes hispanic, he gets pulled over atleast once every couple months and has got tickets for the smallest crap like window tint.

i'm white and i get pulled over every couple months for stupid **** too whats your point? Sure we can make an argument for racial profiling but come on

If you got something that is not up to the Law's standards sooner or later your going to get nailed on it some more than others.

just put in orange turn signals, orange side markers.....if you put in white intentionally....dont complain about the cops pulling you over....you put them in in the first place..


also...if tint or colors of bulbs are a problem...or an issue....just stick w/ what you know IS legal....so you don't have to deal w/ cops etc etc...

Did you guys know that if you don't have a specific sized trash bag in your car, you can be cited for a $75 dollar ticket?

Yepz..go look it up....it's for litter control. Think it's BS? There's a TON of traffic, vehicle, and safety codes, ANY cop could write you up.

I think it's funny that people that have stock rides without the "show" never get hassled.

Here in KY you cannot have any color besides red (on the rear cannot be in the front) or amber. But to be honest the cops around the area I live dont really care, as long as its not blue. But I have a feeling the cops are gonna crack down because there was a pretty nasty street racing accident Friday night. (A SS Camaro slammed into a concrete wall while racing a 300zx.)
