    I've seen people stopped in Mass for something as simple as replacing their amber turn signal with a clear one.

    According to the statie in NH that pulled me over you can't have yellow fogs. Didn't bother arguing but just thought it was interesting. Never had an issue with amber or yellow in MA.... All my cars have had yellow fogs.

    Yeah it is a pretty strict state. Funny thing is I passed inspection last weekend. Can’t say I’m surprised it was the hi lo across from the Chinese food place on Main Street. Gotta love Webster well atleast try to.

    Pics can be deceiving with light sources, but I'd be willing to bet be had a problem with the brightness and used the color as an excuse to get you to change them. I believe those particular Baja fogs had an issue with too much light bleeding out above the intended beam pattern.

    You were pulled over because they were blinding, if they were pointed down enough you would have no problem. If you blinded the cop tickets follow ; -) or the cop is a dick... we have that problem too

    no way you can aim these baja designs "SAE" (actually not sae) fogs. they're known for having shit glare above the cut off line and in the picture he is well above the height of the fogs 10 feet in front of his truck lol.
