I got pulled over lastnight for my front STOCK sidemarkers. I drive a 92 nissan sentra se. The cop said I couldn't have them on b/c he can still see it while standing in front of the car.:rolleyes: I told him that these were factory sidemarkers and even say nissan on them. He suggested that I contact the dealer to let them know. I wasn't given a ticket, but given a warning. Out of all the neons, blue headlights, led flame exhaust tips, and led washer nozzle lights that hondas have in my town, he pulls me over for a stock sidemarker!?! What BS! California people, beware of your sidemarkers....lol!

well, she didnt get a ticket. im sure he pulled you over to find something, and thats all he could get. did 92s come w/ factory markers? i have a set of amber bmw side markers, but i need to get the wiring harness and get them installed still.

There has to be more to this story. I can't fathom why he'd question stock side lights.

Well...my car does look a little tricked out considering I have a xenon bodykit and rims. That cop probably thought I was some punk kid w/drugs or looking for a DUI. He was profiling. I didn't want to argue w/him about the sidemarkers... Next thing you know, he'll tell me to pop the hood and see all my hs bolt ons and probably give me a ticket for that. You'd be surpised how the cops are here. They are bored!

is it not legal in some states to have bolt-ons on a street car?

just out of curiosity, are your sidemarkers wired to be on with the parkign lights or just to flash with the blinkers? If they are always on, try rewiring them to act as blinkers. just a thought.

Yes, they're always on but I did wire them to flash w/the blinkers...It's weird though, they flash together when my lights are off and alternate when they're on. Does this make any sense?

yeah well a cop made me get out and walk a line and told me I had been drinking (never drank in my life) for not having my headlights on *at dusk in a well lit area*.. (i had my side-markers & fog lights). I was on my way to a dance so I was decked out in a button up and kacki's .. so it's not like I even looked bad. He just wanted to get me for something, so he gave me a "light violation." Blah, damn rookies. I made him look completely stupid and it got thrown out. I can't stand cops on power trips. So I know how you feel man, he just wanted to get you for something else -- but couldn't, so he decided to give you a warning. But hey, at least you don't have a ticket :)

That is a text book thing that they look for (cops) is no headlights which is a very common feature of drunk drivers, so he was "ass"uming you were a drunk.

I am sorry but F California. I'll take 25" of snow before I come out there to live. You guys got it rough. Emmissions, Tickets for everything. California must really be a broke state for them to ticket you for every damn thing. As bad as NYPD can be I still love them!
