Dont know when, but i heard they passed the law where neons and LED lights are now legal in PA. ( motorcycles only if anyone cares) But you can now use them while riding at night. I just bought the 7 color 8 light set from lizzard lights.

Just thought i would pass it on.

Thanks for the PDF file

Here is the PDF file
Thanks for posting the PDF file. It shows that you are allowed blue-dot lights, standard bulb running lights, LED pods and strips, but NOT valve stem lights, strobe lights, neon or light wire.

I didn't know that LED pods and strips were previously illegal, so this doesn't really mean much to me. Neons on a cycle do look kind of cool, in an 80's type of way.....

I think that the site isn't up to date

PENDOT hosts the vehicle code online at http://www.dmv.state.pa.us/vehicle_code/index.shtml

If you look, you will see that there is no Title 75, Section 4310. That would indicate that this bill never passed. Are you sure it became law?
Jim,
I think that the site simply wasn't updated yet. If you look here at title 75:

http://www.dmv.state.pa.us/pdotforms/vehicle_code/chapter43.pdf

You'll see that chapter 43 goes up to section 4309, so 4310 would be the next one.

Searching the state's legislative site, I found this:
http://www.legis.state.pa.us/WU01/LI/BI/BH/2005/0/HB0901.HTM

Which says that it was approved by the big man governor (literally) himself.

Yep. Those would be all the steps for a bill to be passed. Kinda lame that it doesn't show up on the official website yet. But in doing the research, I discovered that Pennsylvania seems to be kinda lame about making Code available on the internet.

Anyway... Light 'em up!

Agreed on the lameness. I remember a few years ago when I was attempting to research the vehicle code for fighting a traffic citation, I discovered that the code wasn't available on line. There was a magistrate district justice which had his own site containing much of the code, but it wasn't complete or official.

But, I'll gladly trade that lameness for our lack of rolling radar, and the ability for only state police to use radar.....
