yes, most new higher end exec cars have LED tail lights now. Car manufacturers wouldn't be able to sell them if they weren't legal in the UK.

Because EU law trumps UK law on the subject. Not sure if retro fitting them would still be illegal?

have they told you No person shall use, or cause or permit to be used, on a road a vehicle unless every lamp, reflector, rear marking and device is in good working order and, in the case of a lamp, clean.

Re: Proved a police woman wrong :D

And the irony is if some mad pshycotic axe-man had been knocking on your front door and she had turned up you would have been kissing her arse and offering your first born child to make him go away.

Here is my opinion.......Cut the plod some slack and wise up to the fact that individuals dont know everything. If it had gone to court we all know what the outcome would have been so why carry on about who was right and who was wrong. They do a damned good job and get FA respect for it. As far as I am concerned the only person you are making an arse out of is yourself ffs.

I'd rather have a little wasted time and have more criminals off the roads. No ones perfect.
