Port Saint Lucie, FL asked in Traffic Tickets and Civil Rights for Florida

Q: are blue park/running lights illegal?

I was pulled over by a cop who did a U-turn to get me and told his boss he pulled me over for my blue license plate lights (but gave me a warning on that) but then wrote me a ticket because he said I had flashing blue tail lights and that my blinker was blue, but when you turn on the car the lights do not blink at all and my blinker is the original orange the car came with. They also had a k9 dog going crazy and there was about 4-6 officers that came over and searched my car.
