Blue dots are commonly installed by motorcycle riders to draw attention to their motorcycles as they drive down the road. When people see them, it grabs their attention. Most motorcycle riders feel that blue lights help improve rider safety. Blue dot taillights are also common on hotrods and sometimes installed on everyday vehicles. Opponents of blue dot taillights feel that drivers could become confused and think the vehicle is an emergency response vehicle. Because of this, many states, including Florida have laws governing the use of blue dots.
According to Law.Onecle.com, Florida defines a blue dot taillight as a red taillight lens with a blue or purple inset attached that equals no more than one inch in diameter fixed to the rear of a vehicle.
According to Title XXIII Motor Vehicles Section 320.01, vehicles titled under "custom built vehicles" and "street rods" qualify to use blue dot taillights as long as the light meets the state's definition. The legislation does not list the use of blue dot taillights on motorcycles as either legal or illegal.
Sale of Blue Dot Lights
Florida legislation does not prohibit the sale of taillights that have blue dots pre-installed. You do not have to show proof that you plan to install blue dot taillights only on specifically approved vehicles.
