    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.

    We all have good points about this law.But what we need to focus on is changing the law. The real problem is that the laws are written to enforce at the officers leisure whenever he/she deems necessary, thats where the law is wrong. You see cops are human which means that they have opinions and prejudices with that being said we are all violated on a regular basis but just don't have the knowledge nor the time to protect our rights.Remember the tickets you get pay the city employees, don't think for one minute that laws are just written for public safety, money is to factor in also!!

    I have a 1986 Mazda 323 that has Blue undercar neons and multiple lights inside the car. I have been pulled over around 10 times for my lights. I went to the police station and asked a cop what is legal. He said any lights above the windows are illegal, but all the light such as under seats and dashboards are ok, just as long as they are not flashing. He also said to stay away from red and blue lights because they just give the cops another reason to pull you over. So now I have all my lights on 2 switches, legal and illegal. Also I am wondering if neons are legal in Florida?

    i recently got a ticket for having blue neon lights on the under side of my deck on my Goped®, but the cop didnt seem to care about the blue neon on my handle bars.!!!!!!!! but i guess it really depends on the cop that pulls you over because other times they pull me over, give me a warning and often complain about my "ground effects"

    I think that anyone who is dumb enough to take their eyes off of the road long enough to wreck, they probably had it comming to them.noone can prove that the lights on the car is what the cause is for people wrecking.

    I am not sure what the laws are here about the neon lights. I do know it is illegal but not sure to what extint. I have the underbody kit purple neons,I also have them all in side of my car.I think making them illegal is just about wrong. For one whats the big deal if you have lights on under you car? Do you not have head lights, that come in all colors?? and the neon license plate covers you see everwhere and no cops seem to care. And the tirefly lights, no one seems to care. whats the difference??!! What about all these new cd players that have the bright colored lights???!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
