Default Got a good laugh

NBR, his g/f and mine took his Cruiser out for dinner on friday. While I was driving it home I had the Underglows on (green) and just about every driver we passed, or passed us started rubber necking at the car! I have a white set in my car, and I never get this kind of attention. Some of the ppl we saw just did a simple look, most ppl looked like they hurt themselves craining their necks.

Just thought I'd share [8]

Hope ya don't get a ticket. Underglows are illegal to drive with just about everywhere.

Yeah, what's the logic behind that? [:I]

I have been stopped w/ my underglows on and the cop just asked where all the light was coming from.

I'm telling you it's the RADIOACTIVE green glow that gets 'em. Also the logic behind them being illegal is just that. They attract attention and people take there eyes off the road to look. Then they hit the car in front of them.

So we all suffer because people can't pay attention.

We all suffer because if everyone drove around in flashing, glowing blue and green and yellow cars, it would get a lot more distracting.

If you've ever been to a major strip (ie Broadway, Vegas, etc) you know how distracting all those lights can be, even to a seasoned driver.

Ya wanna park your car and show it off with lights, be my guest. Turn all that crap off when you put it on the road.

I personally don't see an issue with a static light (one that doesn't flash.)

I do not think that strobing lights should be legal as they are used for emergency vehicles and the like. But there should be no issues for a static downward facing light of any colour.

That's just my opinion though...

That's they joy of owning these things. They are like blank canvas just waiting for our own personal touches. Personally I like lights and "tasteful" chrome accents. I don't like stickers and furry bits. It's all personal taste.
