Default Pimp Lights...

So I live in Connecticut and me and my boy are driving in his 09 Altima that he put angel eyes on. A cop pulled us over and he comes up and says "You know your headlights are illegal? They're called pimp lights." ... Wtf??? we ended up not getting a ticket or anything but he warned us that other cops might not be so lenient. such bs right?? lol

Cali that's illegal too because it's considered driving with your parking lights and most states that's illegal no matter what color they are

What would you have called him if he had given you the ticket?

Sounds like he was pretty decent to me.

I'm sorry, thats bullshit. If I'm right, most BMWs have halos that run without the HIDs being on, so unless he's pulling over ever BMW, I believe it was just some bullshit he said just to stop you to see if there were any illegal activity going on.

Even though it looks nice. Some packages even say for off road use only. Technically, a hid bulb installed in a halogen headlight is illegal. But no one knows the difference if done right. Even painting the housing reduces light output. But again a cop wouldn't know what the output was. I would think opening the headlight and altering it would be illegal as this is not what the manufacture designed it to do. If the manufacture installed it than they would also test it for legal street use per regulation. Lowering a vehicle too low on the ground is also illegal but we all do it anyway. Car makers have the right to certify their own products. Cilvilians can't certify anything on a product made by someone else. Just saying the law has the right to enforce rules anytime at their discrection.

I might be wrong but its a good coversation.

I'll agree there. That is kinda messed up based on principle; but we all know profiling is alive and well. If these halos are on cars non BMW, it's illegal? They don't even put out much light what's the big deal?

On bmws they're automatically set for day time only they're drl's, they automatically turn off and the headlights turn on when it's dark enough outside, if they stay on the whole time they're aftermarket making them illegal, the op and his friend probably were driving with the halos on after dark

Just because some car has them stock doesn't make it legal to add them to your car, ESPECIALLY aftermarket ones. There is a lot of money and R&D to make OEM halo and any other LED DRL's meet DOT standards. Some may think the cop was "being dumb", but maybe he is in fact smarter than you think since he knew those halo's weren't OEM. I have absolutely no problem with people running halo's, but the fact of the matter is they aren't DOT approved (even if the halo itself was, once you perform any headlight mod the headlight is no longer DOT approved), they are illegal, and you run the risk of being pulled over. You can't always blame the cop when you know you have or are doing something illegal.

On this I will agree. However, I feel sometimes "probable cause" is stretched. I know on paper this may be entirely legit for the cop to make the decision.... But come on... If you saw a pimped out Maxima driving with halo lights as a cop, and a Toyota corolla with stock everything and halo headlights too... Who would attract your attention first? It's human nature to pick out what we find relevant first; and this tends to be the things that stick out to us
