you have an auto and looking at them in park? I thought the same thing, but when you take it out of park the taillights turn off.

they only pull u over cuz the "Reverse light" (clean part of tail light) is covered. if u smoke ur tails and leave the clear part clear, a cop will not pull you over. thats the reason they pull u over, majority of the people have them all tinted, but i think it looks sick with the clear part left clear
