Defective vehicle, $109 and park the car till thery are removed and likely a VI as well. Kermit said it best...It's hard to be green!

Head light emit other than white light. $109 or they could use an offence that is only $81. But they could issue a box 1 and tow the car.....

What the h---- is wrong with white....

Are the LIGHTS green, or are we talking about the green-tinted covers that are supposed to block/filter speed lasers?

in Lemans, the slower cars have yellow headlights, and the faster cars have white headlights, so that when the slower cars see white headlights behind them, they know to GTFO.

I'm not sure why anyone would want slow-colour headlights..

They're actually all blue, it's just the Doppler shift you're seeing.

And if all this fact/mocking still doesn't make your friend remove them, tell him to at least keep the stock ones in the glove box so he can try to convince the officer pulling him over to let him swap them back in so he at least avoids getting towed (if he's really lucky)

Wow people would fall for that crap.... no wonder I'm poor I give people too much credit ..... they can actually sell green headlight covers by telling people they some how defeat laser speed devices...... We do not even aim them at the lights.....

I have a new product red colored lamp covers..... they make you invisible to police...... they come with a dozen free donuts so you can bribe any police officers that some how are imune to the red covers powers.... Only two easy payments or $29.99 plus S&H..... but if you act now I will throw in a pair of tail light covers for free normally a $50.00 value....

omg

Saw a truck today with one blue headlight and one green one... talk about WTF.

And Pacer, anytime I've seen the green headlight covers, I've also seen a green cover on the front plate... somehow I doubt that works any better.

Green is messed up, but I agree, I'd want yellow headlights, but I'm not sure of the legality of them since I've only even seen them used as auxiliary fog lights.

actually, the faster cars now have blue strobe lights in their windshields to signal the slower cars they are behind them. =]

Headlamps
4.05 (1) A motor vehicle must be equipped with either one or 2 headlamps mounted on each side of the front of the vehicle and capable of displaying white light.

Chartruse or puce or even magenta are also not good or legal choices.

It's not about seeing... it's about looking cool/unique/different. Headlights are a fashion accessory, not a safety device.

Duh.
