It's common sense, really. You're not allowed to have blue lights of any kind on your car because you risk confusion with an emergency vehicle.

You're not allowed to have any colour other than white on the front of your vehicle. Red lights indicate the back of a vehicle, brake lights, red driving lights. White lights indicate the front of a vehicle, or in the case of reverse lights, that the vehicle is moving toward you. The same logic follows for the colour of the reflectors on the sides of the road, they match the lights of vehicles going in the associated directions to reduce confusion.

It's a fairly logical system. :D

Don't be an idiot, just because you know better doesn't mean everyone else does. It's a stupid ricer mod that has no value except to make the driver look like an A grade retard.
