Blue Dot Taillight Bill Signed Into Law in Mississippi

A SEMA-supported bill to allow antique vehicles and street rods to display a blue, violet or purple light as part of the vehicle’s rear stop lamps was signed into law by Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour.  Mississippi defines antique motor vehicles as those manufactured more than 25-years ago and street rods as modified vehicles produced by an American manufacturer in 1948 or earlier and used as a safe, nonracing vehicle.  The bill follows in the tradition of similar laws enacted in other states, including recently in Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana and Rhode Island.
