He could only get ya bad ass for something else if there was something else to do you for. If your car is legal then he is goosed, a top tip also is carry a video camera, you are allowed to video the police just as they are allowed to video you. That stands as evidence in a court of law.

says it all really, 1 minute there illegal all together and he wanted them ripped off and then they were just illegal if they were switched on. sounds to me like not even the police kno. Thus meaning there has been no law about it. So these stupid power freaked coppers need to watch bb and get a reality check.

Agree with evo babe about the text talk, real difficult to translate.

Most police dont have a clue, i have inlaws that are poilice officers that dont even know what NOS is, they wouldnt know that rear lights have to have reflectors and would probs be baffled at neons.

Just got unlucky i suppose.

you should have asked him to call a traffic cop out as they are the law on the roads.

then if he said turn them of or go to court you could then say see you in court.

there is no section or code for neon lights in teh police book as of yet.

make sure your neons are not on show and that the glow is only visible. if they can see the light tubes like on yours then you do have a problem.

but hey not all coppers are bad there are some thatt are on your side you might not know it.

:go:

I got pulled about my neons and i said iv been told it is only illegal if the tube is showing, to this he replied 'well if the sun is behind a cloud can you see the light??' confused i was like hmmmmm shut up... but i didnt argue coz he could have done me for my tires frown why do they even bother pulling people over for things like this, they need to be out doing something that actual helps people like catching real criminals!!!!!!!!!!!!
