yeah, I understand your frustration there. Fortunately my neighbors are pretty good about it but in the small town I lived in a few years back, I wouldn't have dared do that little test run because the town rent-a-cops had nothing better to do than harass people for stuff like that. And I'm looking forward to seeing how these reverse lights work tonight. They sure look a lot better than the incandescent lights. My running board LEDs got quite a few comments from various people along my journey out camping and back this weekend.
