    printer friendly version

    Question: What are the laws limiting the different color lights you can have on your tires or undercarriage of your car? Are under vehicle ground effect lights legal in Arizona?

    Answer: There are many different extras you can add to your car to make it look really cool, including several types of lights that attach to various places on your car. Although these lights can make your car look cool, safety is one of the first considerations for Arizona laws on this topic. There are very specific guidelines in Arizona Law concerning colored lights and undercarriage or "Ground Effects" lights.

    Arizona law says (ARS §28-931) that any reflectors or lights mounted on the front or front side of a car be "amber" which is a yellowish-orange color. And any reflectors or lights on the back or side back must be red, except for signal lights which must be red, yellow or amber. The light illuminating the license plate must be white.

    Arizona Law (ARS §28-940) also addresses other car and truck lighting equipment. A car or truck cannot have:

    • more than two side or fender lights and they must be amber or white color.
    • more than one running board light on each side and they must be white or amber color.
    • more than two backup lamps (like a spotlight) but the backup lamps must not be shining while the vehicle is in motion.

    Also, Arizona Law (ARS §28-947) has restrictions on the type of headlights you can have, and their brightness. And it is against Arizona Law for any car other than an emergency vehicle to have a red or blue light visible from the front of the vehicle.

    So, Arizona Law allows you to have certain lights of certain colors on your car, but you cannot put differently colored lights on the body, under carriage or tires of your car. Safety is the priority, and colored lights can be distracting. People's eyes need to be on the road instead of looking at cool lights in order to avoid causing accidents.

    Don't forget that some lights on your car are mandatory, like break lights, turn signals and headlights. You can be pulled over if any of these lights aren't working properly, so make sure to do regular maintenance on you car.

    I recently got pulled over for my green underlights in Georgia.  The officer said that I was not speeding, but that the green underglow was illegal.

    I have LED light tubes under the front, sides, and back of my 97 Towncar. When I installed them I used some L shaped alluminum that I cut a few inches longer then the LED tubes. I put the LED tubes in them so that the light from the tubes couldn't be seen from any side of my car unless you were laying on your back looking up. The only light that can be seen is the glow on the ground. This method of installation doesn't have as bright of light output, but it hasn't gotten me pulled over yet. With my lights I have my choice of blue, red, green, pink, amber, white, and aquablue.

    more.... You know in washington you can get your lic.. at 16 but can't drive with anyone else other than your blood family in the car until 18. There are more strict laws in other places and I think that undercarrage lights are not needed. I'd bet that if most of the people on here complaning don't pay for the stuff that they do put on their car, or the car is still in mommy's or daddy's name. I think that if you had to pay for it you would prob buy something else.

    Serving this country in Iraq at this time, I was very suprised to see that there were so many people to complain about not being able to turn on lights. What is the big deal with it anyway? I think that you should be more worried about what can happen to others rather than the look of your car. Are you going to win a show because of that light? Let me tell you here, I have won many car shows with my 99 Civic and i don't have one extra light, or even a body kit for show. Do you really need the attention of other people looking at your car? If that is the case I think that you need a FRIEND!!
