Willing to bet 99.999% of inspections stations can't tell the difference between an LED blinker bulb and incandescent...................................
I don't know about those officials running inspection stations as it isn't something we have here. I believe it is quite easy to tell the difference between a flashing LED and incandescent bulb. The LED has a sharp ON/OFF signature whereas an incandescent bulb by its very nature requires a filament to heat up and cool off resulting in a less definitive ON/OFF signature.

Do they have the DOT branded on them? Seems highly suspicious one of the things listed ISN’T DOT approval.

JUST AN FYI, there is no DOT approval. DOT does not test nor certify any automotive light bulbs. DOT has a standard set, it is up to the manufacturer of the bulb to meet that standard and if they do, they can print the DOT approval. But nothing is ever sent or tested by the DOT

Fair enough. But if they met the criteria, I’d think it’d surely be touted.

I just went with their response to my query. At least the darn pkging doesn't have off road use only in big red letters like the Sylvania ones do.

Never was sure how that worked. I simply asked if their bulbs were street legal. They said yes. We have some dick head DA's in my area. One need only look at the debacle in Waco, TX a few years ago. All those bikers charged and then, all the charges dropped. Just CMA.

All the charges were dropped because Abel Reyna bit off more than he could chew
