I have yet to find a color in TN that is illegal. I have mine set to red 90% of the time. Jdusty sets his on blue 90% of the time. jDusty and I have tried pretty much every color you can and neither one of us of had any trouble with the law concerning the UB. Heck, not that I have the V2, I will ride with teh multi color on and haven't had any trouble.

Also, if you notice the stick at the top of this part of the forum, jDusty has a link to lighting laws. According to TN law and experiences jdusty has had, red/blue are not illegal unless flashing.

Where you happen to be at in east TN?

They are really strict about red and blue around here, flashing or not. I got pulled over again last night for the second time for my blue LED's above the license tag.. of course it all depends on the officer. Some are out to get you and others don't really care. The reason they are so strict is because about a month or two ago someone was pulled over by what they thought was a police officer, but it happened to be someone with blue lights in there car so they pulled a gun on this lady on the side of the road and raped her... I live in Johnson City about an hour from Knoxville.

Some cops make white illegal in the rear because ya know, reverse lights are white. So be careful with that since I am assuming you have a rear tube on there icon_smile.gif

The cops in my area of TN are ho help. Their response to me was "You're on the edge, Be careful." And that was just with a blaze kit, I would hate to here what they would say with my V2 now.

pull up the link and then there is a folder to the left...click it...then find motor vehicles...then blue flashing lights section...

As A-Ray just recently found out, It is somewhat up to the interpretation of the cop, but most of them do not even know the law about lighting....

If we can help you with anything else just let us know...

I personally keep the state law in my glove box just in case there is a butthole cop that just does not know the law...Just to be on the safe side...

55-9-414. Blue flashing emergency lights on motor vehicles unlawful Exception Penalty.

(a) (1) It is unlawful for anyone to install, maintain or exhibit blue flashing emergency lights or blue flashing emergency lights in combination with red flashing emergency lights, except full-time, salaried, uniformed law enforcement officers of the state, county, or city and municipal governments of the state, and commissioned members of the Tennessee bureau of investigation when their official duties so require as defined by 38-8-106 and 38-8-107.

The only way in the state of Tennessee for white to be illegal, is if it is pointed toward the rear of the vehicle...

Hope this helps...
