State Police Issue Warning About Illegal Lights On Vehicles
Maine Police Troopers have been noticing a lot of illegal lighting on vehicles and are warning drivers that they may end up with a fine.
Tricking out your vehicle can be fun, with pinstripes or decals. But State Police say they've been seeing an increase in the use of white emergency lighting being used in conjunction with amber lighting. Amber lights are authorized for some non-emergency vehicles in some applications, while white lights are strictly prohibited for non-emergency vehicles.
It's illegal to display unauthorized lighting on non-emergency vehicles, and any optional auxiliary lighting that blinks, oscillates, rotates, flashes, or is of a color contrary to the law. Getting caught with any of these lights will fetch a $154 fine. Suddenly, not so cool, huh?
