This wasn't my car but I recently put some blue/red LED strips into the front grille of my friends Grand Am (Pics in Gallery).

Well the other night he calls me at like two in the morning to let me know he got pulled over for having his lights on. His switches are mounted on the floor under his seat and he bumped them getting in his car, and drove a ways before he got stopped.

Cop tells him he could have had 5 years in jail and a $2,000 fine for impersonating a police officer.

Thankfully he let my friend off with a warning and said that he thought they looked really cool. He said he liked his interior neons as well.

No blue/red combos on the outside for me.

Holy crap, I'm sure glad I've never gotten seen by a cop when I forget to flip my stuff off leaving a parking lot.

When I realize I'm on the road with lights on my blood always runs cold, eek.

I joked before he got pulled over that he could be charged with impersonating a police officer, but I really didn't think he would be. Thankfully the cop sounded like a pretty good guy.

He did say anything blue on the outside in Michigan is a big no-no. It didn't sound like the red is what got him pulled over.

red and blue on the outside of the car is a no-no in most states.

Minnesota uses mostly red for the state troopers and police cars. However, there are some blue/red combos used also.

Blue and red are generally NEVER allowed.

I know southern states like FL, GA, etc use all-blue for their state troopers and whatnot.

Cops like to tell people what they could get if they recieved maximum punishment. I would assume this is to scare people so they don't do it again or something stupid like that.

As some of you now know, I have blue and green in my grill now. I was pretty daring last night and left it on while driving, and it was fine. Hovever, one person started to pull over LMFAO because I had it set to the beat of the music so it was kinda strobing/flashing...

around here if it's red/blue or white and flashing you can get an impersonating a public safety vehicle( fire police and ems)... It's around $300 in fines and court costs ... If you have a siren or try to pull someone over it's jail time and big $$$
