Florida Vehicle Light Color Laws

For everyone in Florida-here is the insert from the Florida Statutes of Passenger Cars I received from the Florida Highway Patrol in response to my e-mail to them:

2) Any vehicle may be equipped and, when required under s. 316.222(2), shall be equipped with electric turn signals which shall indicate an intention to turn by flashing lights showing to the front and rear of a vehicle or on a combination of vehicles on the side of the vehicle or combination toward which the turn is to be made. The lamps showing to the front shall be mounted on the same level and as widely spaced laterally as practicable and, when signaling, shall emite amber light. The lamps showing to the rear shall be mounted on the same level and as widely spaced laterally as practicable, and, when signaling, shall emit a red or amber light.

***there is another section about blue headlights that is too long to include here, but it basically says the same thing "must light the roadway 450 feet from the vehicle, including newer vehicles equipped with the High Intensity Discharge lighting systems and must be white in color"*** Sorry to be the party pooper for the Florida folks, but it might save you a ticket.

Re: Florida Vehicle Light Color Laws

Thats not too bad. I live in Tennessee and we can have any color of lights on our car as long as they are not flashing blue or red, and are not in a red white and blue combo. But i live close to Virgina and they have a catch all law that states no unaproved equipment, including tint, lights, mufflers, radar detectors. Also a quick fact the FCC made a law back in 1924, i think in 24', that citizens have the right to recive any incoming rader signals. So if you get caught with a rader detector you can fight and win if you get a copy of the federal law.

I will blow by you like smoke.
