Your not allowed to see anything red standing in front of the vehicle and cab lights you can see. It would be cool looking though

I have red LED's in the grille for almost 6 months and i havent been pulled over, ive talked to many of the local cops and most of them didnt even know it was a law, but really from what they told me unless you get a really p.o.ed cop thats trying to make quota.

The best thing I have found to do this is a few thick coats from a red sharpie. I got this from a cop who used it on his interior lights for writing reports and not blinding him from seeing out of his car. I had the red bulbs and they are just coated with a thin plastic film that peeled off after a few hours of us. The best solution would be a red led but the sharpie has worked for me for several years and hasn't peeled off or faded.
