Underglow lights are a car lighting system, that when attached to the underside of your vehicle provide an eye catching modification, giving your car a cool ambient floating effect.
There are no laws that prohibit you from fitting LED Neon Underglow Lights on your car. However, there are specific guidelines that determine which colours you are allowed to display.
The Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations 1989 provides an extensive list of rules for all types of car lighting permitted for UK drivers, which include:
-You are only allowed to use white or yellow headlights at the front of your car.
-Blue, green and red lights are not allowed in any direction on your vehicle, as you could be confused with emergency services.
-Only red tail lights are permitted, with amber indicator lights, and white reversing lights, which permits license plate lamps.
Our RGB Exterior Neon Underglow Lights come with 12 colour choices, including yellow, mustard, purple, orange, pink, peach, white, navy, army green, green, blue, red and green. This remote controlled lighting system allows you to select a single colour at a time or choose from a range of colour changing modes. The LED bars are made with built in sensors that can be set to react to the beat of your music.
This provides you with more than enough options to avoid the illegal colours, but still be able to have them available for photo shoots, car meets and shows.
To conclude, Underglow kits are legal to install and use, but in accordance with the specified regulations. So if you are in the UK, you are free to add this modification to your car.
