I looked though a few of those laws and could not find any that answers my question...

If the source of the light is not visible while looking strait across the bottom of the car is it legal? My dad use to be a Florissant cop (subburb of STL) and he said that if you could not see the source while looking directly across the bottom is was ok as long as you could only see the glow. Now its been a few years since he worked there and I now currently live in Florissant.. I asked a few cops and they all agree the glow is fine as long as its not strobe Blue or Red... But I cant dig up any laws to actually confirm this. I guess its one of those laws that falls in the gray area...

307.095. 1. Headlamps, when lighted, shall exhibit lights substantially white in color; auxiliary lamps, cowllamps and spotlamps, when lighted, shall exhibit lights substantially white, yellow or amber in color. No person shall drive or move any vehicle or equipment, except a school bus when used for school purposes or an emergency vehicle upon any street or highway with any lamp or device thereon displaying a red light visible from directly in front thereof.

I would consider neon lamps to be auxilary lights and they would be included in this state statute. If you run them, you will get cited. I however was unable to find any information pertinent to running white or amber, just make sure it is not flashing.

Thanks Stang, I went back one by one and read each one and came to the same conclusion as you about the LEDS being considered Auxiliary. I was just curious if they address it in more detail to include neons or LEDs but I guess its just safe to assume that they both are included in the term "Auxiliary".

Ive been pretty safe with my HIDS for over 7 months, been pulled over once and the officer just wanted to know where I got them.. lol. I gave him the website and owners phone number and he let me go. Im hoping my luck will work with the underbody lights too. Probly gonna order them up in a day or two.. im stuck on which one I want, V1 or 2... ohh the decisions.

No problem,

V1 and V2 are roughly the same, V-2 is simply brighter....If I bought again I would probably go with a V2 just because of the height of my truck...would like a little more flow of light into the wheel well areas.

I was cited on my stang once before I had read the state statutes when I was 17 or 18. The cite was a moving violation and was $126 and went on my insurance.

Equipment violation on a moving vehicle on public roadways is a moving violation and will take points off your license. Not as severe as say speeding, reckless etc.
