    White at the front to show you are approaching, red to the rear to show you are departing.

    When you are wiped out because you are faffing about with cool looking fashion lights you are merely adding weight to Darwin's very excellent theory.

    I'm sure there is a law about blue lights on a vehicle being against the law. I'm sure the police would have something to say to you.

    Blue lights are illegal on non-emergency service vehicles. Red lights showing at the front of vehicles are also illegal, a black cab driver was prosecuted for having a miniature Christmas tree on his dashboard with red lights on it.

    Bikes aren't vehicles though, so they are allowed.

    Please provide a link as I don't believe a word of it am slightly sceptical about this.

    I had a look at the laws concerning vehicle lighting last month as I was wondering about the legality of putting fairly lights on your bike. As far as I remember you're not allowed to put blue lights on your vehicle as they are reserved for the emergency services. White lights shoudl not be visible from behind and red lights should not be visible from in front. You are allowed amber running lights along the side.

    Are you being serious there Dom or just having a laugh?

    I am being serious, bicycles are not covered by the same laws as motor vehicles.
