Well, our overtime is a traffic program. All I do is write tickets when doing traffic enforcement. Tinted tails, HIDs, head or tail lights out are all easy to see. Blacked out tails are harder to see, HIDs blind people more easily. Also, I have had felony arrests for drugs, arrests for warrants, etc off of trafic stops for light violations.
You can do what you want just be prepared for the ticket. I used to run no front plates on my sports cars and got some tickets for that.
I guess it depends where you live, ive been pulled over a couple times for the tails i just got out and pulled the covers off and the officer said "see you later" no ticket..
But to target peeps with HID's and tinted tails is just BS, about 5 my friends in town are cops they would just tell you to chill on that stuff, worry about the important things
