UK/Scottish/Welsh Law/Undercar Neon Lights
Hi, Could you please advise on the legality of having neon lighting under a vehicle. I have researched The Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations 1989 (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1989/1796/contents/made
It has been advised in the document that a vehicle must only display white light at the front (except for indicators), red light to the rear (except reverse lights), and amber to the sides.
I also found no restrictions on the height of additional lighting.
I currently have installed red neon under the rear bumper and white neon under the front bumper. The sides have amber neons which flash with the indicators.
I have kept the colours legal. Are there any issues i should be aware of?
