I bought this truck in April from the previous owner who had it for 9 months. Today I just discovered this little extra that he had added. ?Just a tiny little switch under the knee bolster in front of my right leg.

Well in any state pretty much you are guaranteed not to be allowed to use Blue, Red or White lights facing forward.
Obviously only white light allowed forward is headlights and reverse lights rearward on the road.
All 3 colors are considered Emergency Lights. Just look at your Police, Fire and EMS vehicles.

White is perfectly legal, as well as amber, else factory fog and driving lights would be deemed illegal. Strobing them while driving though, will bring issues.

Yes I realized after I said that I did not mention mention white is legal as long as it is lower then the headlights.
Now driving/fog lights can only operate legal with low beam lights. The are illegal with Hi beam lights

That is why models started that in the 90's. That is why they have a relay switch involved.When I installed lights in my 92 Talon reasons I installed factory style driving/fog lights.

Don't run those while parked, you will collect flying insects like a bug zapper.

Yeah plus wouldn't be as effective without electrifying the grille. Then it would be more like a bug zapper.

I got a 500.00 ticket quashed in Cailfornia for neon blue lights under my jeep. Yucca Valley police were ruthless on ticketing us. Code clearly stated flashing red or blue emergency lights. Judge ruled on our favor as the light was not flashing. We never got ticketed again!! Always check your city codes!!

Here in Texas state law prevails over a city ordnance and Texas says solid blue = OK.

New York it is Illegal for Blue and Green (Blue Volunteer Fire (Now also all Emergency Vehicles can use Blue, red and White)) and Green in Volunteer EMS)
Even in the law about being on vehicles.. only yours and your family... so non members of organization can't have on their vehicles
