hey there. this is my first time on the board
i finally fixed my driver side mirror with a pair of m3 side mirrors with blue turn signal. they look awsome although i heard there could be a problem regarding police since only they can have blue lights on their car.
cruise on...tucker

Re: blue light law? (tuck30)

Make the turn signals yellow, not blue, if you don't want either tickets or other drivers having difficulty interpreting your turn signals (if you have a crash, and the other driver says that s/he didn't know that your blue light was your turn signal, you're more likely to be assigned the fault).

Re: blue light law? (tuck30)

Welcome to the Vortex
This law is the same pretty much everywhere, it is like "inpersonating a Police Official/Officer", No Blue Lights are to be shown on any vehicle other than Police Vehicles and red for Emergency Vehicles. You should change them if you are worried about getting tickets. I have blue xenon headlight bulbs and PIAA "blue-color" fender side marker lights and drive with them all the time, but I guess I am lucky(knock on wood). Cause some of my friends got tickets for having blue headlights(and mine are way more blue than theirs) and side markers
. Well, do what you gotta do, whatever you decide, it is your Dub and your wallet.
