So last Sunday I pick HELICITY up from my installer! I had my Oracle Color Shift 2.0 Halos and fogs from HALO KIT - Custom Headlights
installed. I am driving home last night from the car wash around 5:30pm with my solid green Halos on. Here I am just cruising along, actually probably slower then the 45mph speed limit. And there it is in my rear view mirror flashing blue lights!
I pull over and up to my driver side window comes 20 year old cop if that accompanied by female training officer on my passenger window. Aggressively toned I get first words "License and Registration!" I ask, "Whats the problem officer?" He Replies "How many cars do you see driving on the road with green lights!" I replied "Not that many but more than flashing blue lights behind me!"
I then plea my case that police officer friends of mine including a State Trooper I spoke with said it is all discretion of the officer but the unwritten law was if you stay away from Blues and Reds and no flashing or osculating affects you should be ok. And if you do get pulled over it is most likely just a reason in hopes of finding something more to get you on.
So long story short, He comes back and gives me a warning telling me I am going to catch a lot of crap for driving around with them on...I asked him to go to the front of my car and asked ok then how about this color, or this color, or this color...I got a smerk and I ended with I will definitely stay away from this color as I put on the strobbing red and blue police car mode..I finally got the smile and was told those are pretty kewl and different but I would drive with white and save the colors for shows and parking and off I went with my warning...LMAO
I dont know what the big deal is with lighting....I mean I can totally understand the blue or even red and totally see the flashing part...But here we are in the day and error of people driving with cell phones, text messaging, computers on cars etc and they want to bust balls for accent lighting.
They way I look at it and plea it...It makes other drivers aware of you and truly believe it adds safety! Just my opinion. But I am not going to be a hypocrite and say that maybe its a distraction to other drivers as well. But I think there are alot more distractions then a car driving by with colored halo lights.
So has anyone had any issues with after market lighting. I hope to post some pictures soon of the lights! What a great mod to add to your ride if your looking for a really sharp looking upgrade. I have got a lot of compliments in just the week I have had them. Great product from HALO KIT - Custom Headlights
Oh and to end, I drove around today again on purpose with my greens and also purple and past a few police cars and no blue lights. So it is going to be discretion and if it does happen I will plea my case again and hope for the best!
