    1. Daytime running lights must be white or yellow or any mix of the two (Federal law)

    2. No federal law exists that dictates headlight color, only intensity and leveling.

    3. Texas forbids red as the only color not allowed on the front of the vehicle.

    4. Blue, red, or white cannot be used on the front if it flashes. (see #3 again for red)

    5. Engine cowl (washer lights) or fender markers must be amber or white.

    6. Marker and parking lights must be white or amber on the front, and red or amber in the rear.

    I used to be with it, but then they changed what "it" was, and now what I'm with isn't it. And what's "it" seems weird and scary to me. -Grampa Simpson

    Of every one hundred men, ten should not even be here. Eighty are nothing but targets. Nine are real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the One... One of them is a Warrior... He will bring the others back.
