Question Law enforcement question

So, I got pulled over about an hour ago for more or less running LEDs, He said he probably wouldn't have just pulled me over for the underbody, but it was the interior that caught his eye. (coincidently not my new ones, they were off at the time..) He also mentioned that green is illegal, whereas I've asked other cops what colors are, they've all said the same thing, you know, no red, no blue, and ABSOLUTELY no flashing of the either colors, especially together, which is why I've always stuck with green.

Of course my bad luck i forgot my wallet at home, and i took everything out of my glove compartment for repainting the other day (including title and registration..) so i didn't have any of that...

But my question is:

What would be the limit of LEDS that you would pull someone over for?

What do you mean limit of LEDs?

Interior wise, you would have to be lit up pretty good for me to pull you over unless it was obviously causing a vision issue for other drivers. And I am very strict to the law on vehicle violations.

I don't care if you have LEDs as long as they aren't red, blue or green in the forward facing area. No blue or green in the rear. NO FLASHING, BLINKING, Strobing...etc.

haha, My old interior tubes is what I think got me. I've always hated where there at. You can see the LEDs from a lot of angles outside of the car. So alllmoosstttt front facing.

And what exactly do you mean my front facing? Ihave some in my grill. And you can see the tube, but it's flipped and aimed at the radiator so you doing see the LEDs.

The officer said he didnt like interior leds because it causes the operator to not see as much, which i understand. Even though technically mine arn't that bright.

But it was probably the terrible location of my tubes. Hopefully my new ones fix that problem!

I work in Canada however the laws of lights are pretty much the same other than snow removal

Flashing red blue and clear- emergency vehicles
flashing blue or blue/clear, amber/blue/clear snow removal.
Flashing Green- volunteer firefighters (personal vehicles going to call) and airport emergency vehicle escorts
Flashing amber or amber/clear - roadworks

From the front for personal vehicles you can only have amber or clear (flashing clear is ok if accompanied by amber) absolutely no red or blue or any colour in the front regardless if flashing or not

As for interior on personal vehicles any interior lighting should not be seen from the outside other than original equipment on the vehicle (only exception again is as previously mentioned)

I also understand that volunteer firefighters in the states can deck out personal vehicles with red and clear. That's pretty neat. Not the case here
