Souderton, PA asked in Car Accidents and Traffic Tickets for Pennsylvania

Q: In the state of Pennsylvania, am I allowed to put glow in the dark paint on my car?

This will be a soft glow not nearly as bright as any headlamp or a flashlight even. I've read that in California they do not allow underglow (which is a type of lamp) to be red or blue. I also think if I read correctly that Pennsylvania doesn't allow lamps period, however I have read nothing on the status of whether or not I can use paint that glows.

A: Don't see why not. Ask the police--they're the one's you'll deal with. (You can't take their word as gospel but I didn't find anything saying you couldn't. Note however that many glow in the dark paints do not adhere well to cars.
