Legality of neon

Hi, this might not be the right place to post it, but o well.
I was wondering if anyone knew the legality of neon in california. i see some kits with "street legal" on them, others that say "off-road use only", etc. could someone explain this to me?

Seeing as how I think Im the only one who actually likes neon on this board, I'll answer it.

The "legality" of the kit depends on how distracting it is. In WI, all kits are illegal. I think in Cali, they are legal as long as the kit doesn't change colors, pulse, chase, scan, etc. Basically your run of the mill boring neon kit. Stays on color, and doesn't change at all.

Just make sure you check with your local laws before you believe what the box says and see if you can drive with the kit on or not.
