Section 257.689 of the Michigan Vehicle Code - Clearance and marker lamps and reflectors ; color.

a) Front clearance lamps and those marker lamps and reflectors mounted on the front or on the side near the front of a vehicle shall display or reflect an amber color.

b) Rear clearance lamsp and those marker lamps and reflectors mounted on the rear or on the side near the rear of a vehicle shall display or reflect a red color.

c) All lighting devices and reflectors mounted on the rear of any vehicle shall display or reflect a red color, except the stop light, or other signal device, which may be red or amber, and except that the light illuminating the license plate shall be white.

So, in short, no a white marker light would not be legal either.

I'm not mad at you and I dont mean to come off as that. Im sorry. I realize it was just ranting. I may do the same thing some day when I get pulled over but im hoping that will be never and im not planning on it.

And besides that, mayby you are kinda cute.

Well, almost. The mini-rant which I was attempting to aviod was something about this:

If a cop doesn't have anything to do at the very moment, all "hot" calls are caught up on and such...

They SHOULD be pulling people over, even if it is for something minor. Why? To make contact with citizens. This is very important, the best example is one that I got from a cop who is very (very very ) close to me. More then likely, if you pulled over 10 people for having one headlight out (which is often called a stupid thing to pull someone over for), at least one of them will have a warrant or be drunk or something of that nature.

But yeah, its all good :P
