| O-T Lounge|| what is the point of tinted brake lights? - LSU Wayne on 5/16/13 at 10:31 am|
I had the displeasure of driving behind two vehicles yesterday with highly tinted brake lights. All three, even the middle, were so tinted that they were barely visible.
In congested traffic this is a major road hazard. I would be shocked if it were legal.
