I find this to be less likely than asking a uneducated man. we shouldn't make light of anybody's question. Unless they ask the same question over and over and never listen.

Depending on the color and your state, the lights could be illegal (you can't have certain colors shining to the front).



Thank you. I think I'm well aware of the laws in my state. The washer lights are ultra bright WHITE and are connected (for power) to the amber running lights so whenever they would be on, so would the washer light BUT, I've also added an ON/OFF switch under the hood so they can be turned off at my discretion.

I hooked up my washer LEDs with relays to parking lights/turn signals. They come on with lights and blink with turn signals.
I have amber (yellow) lights.

I knew you would know the laws, I was just posting the issue just in case someone else was thinking of adding them to their vehicle, first check with local laws to see if such an item is allowed.

I once had a vehicle that had a colored rear license plate frame that lit up. When I got stopped for it, the officer still cited me for it, even though I reached under the bumper and ripped out the wire, while he was still talking to me about it, guess he had a ticket quota to meet that day.

We don't have a citation quota per say, but they do want deputies to make stops on a regular basis. It's up to the officer if they should write a citation.

In layman's terms, there could be 200 stops in a month and only 5 citations written and that's ok. Can't speak for other agencies, only Citrus County Florida. I do know if Highway Patrol is called for a crash on a state highway, somebody will be cited.

In my area, they have quotas, see below story for 9 officers that recently are no longer officers:

Arlington fires 9 police officers over falsified traffic stop numbers | The Star-Telegram

What's ironic is, the city where I got cited from, is the same city where these officers were recently fired from.
