If you’re ready to show your holiday spirit to the world, perhaps you’re considering decorating your vehicle this year.
We called the Department of Public Safety to see if such decorations are even legal. It turns out lights are OK, as long as they’re not red or blue (those are reserved for safety vehicles.)
Today, we’re installing white lights on one of our news vehicles. Be sure to get LED lights, because they draw very little power and they don’t get hot. Also make sure to choose an indoor/outdoor set.
You can get a power converter and plug the lights directly into your cigarette lighter, but these days there are light strings that come with their own batteries or solar power panel.
To attach the lights, we recommend zip ties. They’re easy to cut off, and won’t come undone while you’re on the road.
