A: In Nevada, vehicle lighting laws specify the type, color, and location of lights that vehicles can display while on the road. Generally:

White lights: White lights are typically restricted to headlights, backup lights, and license plate lights. They should not be visible from the side or rear of the vehicle, except for backup lights.

Side lights: Amber lights are usually allowed on the side of vehicles, but white lights that are visible from the side may be restricted.

Underglow or decorative lighting: Laws can vary, but any lights that may distract or be confused with required vehicle lights might be prohibited.
