INDIANA (WLFI) — A law banning certain colors of lights on vehicles will soon take effect in Indiana. Starting July 1, headlights and taillights that are not white or amber in color will be deemed illegal.

The law was created so drivers don't confuse lights with the various colors used by emergency vehicles. LED lights with the bluish glow will still be allowed. As a general rule of thumb if the lights come from the factory they are correct.

The law does not specifically address after-market lights that people put underneath cars. Although State police say if underbody lights are visible from the front or back of the car they could result in a ticket.
