Are Red Fog Light Halos Authorized

I am thinking about getting some halos to put around my fog light, and since my car is red in color, I was thinking about getting red halos.

Is this authorized? I have heard about "impersonation of a police officer" and was just wondering.

in all honesty it depends on your local laws..in tn you can run red and blue lights as long as they are steady on and don't have a pattern. i use to run blue back in highschool so i had a print out from the local law book on lighting just in case. although i never had any pull overs due to it.

As already stated it depends on local laws and how strict the 5-0 are where you are. Most places have laws against blinking or patterned blue or red lights. But with all due respect to any officers of the law; you are not always 100% on the laws you enforce. So although it may be "legal" some cops could still give you a hard time and pull you over.

I have orange halos and dont get bothered.

In Indiana, you can't have red or blue lens period, working or not.

Red light on the front is illegal in Oregon. Probably not a wise choice.

Texas drivers are only allowed white and amber lights visible from the front.

I was building a rat rod police bike. I was told even if I took the bulbs out, I couldn't have red or blue lens on the front.

My buddy is an EMT and has a ton if lights on his truck. I believe the law here in GA is the operation of the lights on the road is illegal. So if it was just for car shows you'd be okay but you can't use them while driving. Check your local laws but I'd be willing to bet you can only have white or amber lights, as my friend needed a permit to use red lights on his Raptor.

I don't think you can have any red lights on the front of your car, due to tail lights being red and confusing drivers. Also stoplights and all. At least here in Missouri

I think it's a National Highway Transportation Safety Agency (NHTSA) law that all state and local agencies are required to enforce. In layman's terms, the law states, "White and Amber Only" on the front of vehicles. The specific reference would take some research. Your local State Patrol office can advise you further and may even be able to give you a reference.
