Are there any safe and legal tinted tail lights I can put on my car?

I want to add tinted tail lights to my car I have done my research on them and I have found a lot of negative things about them (being illegal, cars not being able see you at night or can't tell if your lights are brake lights or driving lights when you are braking, increasing risk of being rear ended, etc.) I was surprised when I found out about this because they are so common on cars but since it's like that I was wondering if there are any tinted tail lights that are DOT approved and show red at night so cars can see me I really want tinted tail lights but I don't want to jeopardize my safety and driving record by having an illegal and unsafe modification on my car if there are no such lights that are legal and safe than I'd rather just leave my tail lights the way they are so I just wanted to know if there are any such tinted tail lights

You, as well as many others, may think that the blacked out taillamp look is cool, but in reality it's just stupid to do so mainly because of the great possibility of being rear ended by a driver behind you that cannot see if the brake lamps are lit or not

When I had my WRX, my tail-lights were completely blacked out. You could still completely see my brake lights (even in daylight), and never had any issues. Technically they are not legal, but you won't come across any trouble unless you come across an officer who is actively looking for reasons to get you in trouble (in 6 years of owning the car, I only had one officer threaten to ticket them, but he didn't. He only pulled me over because one of my brake lights were out.)

Long story short, if you go with a light tint on the lights, you won't have any issues. It's easy to do, and it looks great. If you like it, do it.

What makes them illegal is that lights EVEN when NOT lit act as reflectors to show other drivers where your car is day and night. If you use tinted covers you remove that and in some weather conditions like fog or snow every degredation of light yours emit ADDS to the danger of you not being visible.

They are only cool if you are brainless and believe that trend is important in life....It ISN`T.

Hi only the factory fitted units, which your car does not have so sell teh car and buy one with tinted glass.
