    Illegal in the south... GA, AL, FL, SC.

    Same with underside illumination, like the green/purple/red/... color lights underneath the tuners.

    It looks equally as tacky as the undercarriage lights too. If Florida does anything right (which it rarely does), it gets points for making that illegal, if it is illegal.

    I would say illegal, there's no statute that outright says it, but I think many could apply. Of course the MN statute website is down for maintenance right now so I can't provide links, but I have the paper statute book in front of me so I'll just paraphrase.

    169.55.1 - No white light to the rear, if the tire's light is white and you can see if from the rear it's illegal

    169.57.3b - No glaring or dazzling light

    169.64.2 - No vehicles can be equipped, nor can anyone drive or move a vehicle, displaying a red light or any colored light other than those required (brake light/turn signal)

    169.64.3 - Flashing lights are prohibited, there's some exceptions for special vehicles, or for turn signals/hazards

    169.64.4 - Blue lights are prohibited, few exceptions for special vehicles again (road maintenance/snow plows)

    169.64.5 - Flashing amber allowed to some vehicles, but you can't use it while moving on roads

    I'm sure there's others that could apply that I missed, and I'm sure an officer could write you a ticket for some statute that could fit if they wanted to. I'd suggest not using them.

    ^ I'd call it glaring or dazzling. And distasteful and immature.

    Also, ha-ha at the suckers that drive with their hazards on when it rains.

    Pro-tip: it only makes you easy to see because you're distracting and making yourself a hazard, tool. And it's illegal. Afraid to drive? Get off the flipping road.

    I think the under body lights are legal as long as they are not a color that is red, or blue.

    But maybe they changed that as I used to see it a lot like 10 years ago but do not see it anymore.

    I'm pretty sure those would be illegal on public roads here :p
    On closed (private) roads, car shows and such they could be used.
    Same goes for under body lights. Can have them installed but not turned on in public.

    Here blue flashing light is reserved for emergency vehicles. Police, ambulances and fire trucks etc. Flashing amber is used as civilian warning light, roadside construction vehicles, tractors, snow ploughs all things like that.

    Red flashing light is used when police signals you to pull over. :D
