Valenti Tail light (Black edition)

Wondering if I can still get pulled over for these if they are shown as DOT approved?
They seem extremely dark in the pictures and thought the red had to actually be shown at all times when driving?

I live in Michigan btw if that makes a difference!?

State laws differ, as you know. It would be best to check your state's law to know for sure.

I have the smoked sequential tail lights and 4th brake light. I've had sheriffs behind me see the sequential and blinking functions and they've given me no trouble. From what I've heard its the highway patrol that is more anal, not local law enforcement. But, I live in rural california and I imagine it is up to how anal the cops are in your area

I had a local sheriff here on Oahu wail his siren at me for no stupid reason. Then I realized it could be my Red edition Valenti taillights because I have the one that has no side reflectors. So yuh, check your local laws as others have mentioned.
